In the introduction, reference is made to the high rate of fatalities and injuries which occur in modern traffic. A short description is given of the issue of driving-licences in surrounding countries, together with details of the regulations which prevail in Holland. The plan of this investigation is given. It consists of the analysis of dossiers of persons, who were requested by the police to undergo a medical examination on suspicion of unfitness for driving. A discussion follows on the way in which the police demands are carried out. Particular reference is made to the secrecy required by the Hippocratic Oath. The medical findings of the reports of the specialists assigned are noted, but only alcoholism and the decrease of visual acuity are investigated more closely as possible factors in the causation of traffic accidents. Finally a description is given of special cases of police demand on suspicion of unfitness for driving. /TRRL/
