The paper discusses the relation between the severity of head injuries sustained by a pedestrian, the impact speed and the shape of the vehicle's front part. The most dangerous parts of the vehicle which can cause head injuries in children are the box-shaped front part of the vehicle and the first half of the pontoon-shaped bonnet. With adults, it is the wedge-shaped roof edge of the vehicle and box-shaped column of the vehicle. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 818706. (TRRL)
