ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION: A STATISTICAL RESEARCH ON THE EFFECTS OF SAFETY BELTS AND ON INJURY CAUSATION

This study has been started principally to establish the effects of safety belts during accidents in rural and urban areas. "Normal" accidents were also studied as the rate of wearing was only 5 to 10%. During 1969 and 1970 data 22,000 accident-involved-drivers and 16,000 passengers have been collected. General, technical and medical data were collected. Of 22,082 drivers and 8,840 right front seat passengers, 36% and 45%, respectively, were injured + dead, 1.3% and 1.8% dead. The establishing of relationships of the data by means of crossings of two or more data have carried out with the computer, and the results are being studied by SWOV people now. (MW)
