PSYCHOSOCIAL IDENTIFICATION OF DRIVERS RESPONSIBLE FOR FATAL VEHICULAR ACCIDENTS IN BOSTON
The report includes human factor data presentation, analysis, and evaluation of selected variables collected by the Boston University Traffic Accident Research Special Study team during their 30-month research. Human factor variables associated with operators of motor vehicles judged to have been the most responsible for vehicular accidents resulting in a personal fatality were investigated. Areas of interest presented on 300 operators include: demographic and psychosocial variables, historical patterns of alcohol use and accident-alcohol involvement, historical patterns of marijuana and street/entertainment drug use and accident involvement, the Risk Taking Behavior Scale (RTBS) and the Human Factor Stress Scale (HFSS).
