TRAFFIC INJURIES IF BRISBANE HOSPITALS OVER ONE DECADE

Three sample studies of the incidence and patterns of traffic injuries over the past ten years indicate a great rise in general incidence, but specific savings in some types of injury to various categories of participants. It is suggested that beneficial effects of both seat-belt and crash-helmet legislation are identifiable, but that the causes of other changes, most notably the selective reduction of some types of injury and of mortality in pedestrians, are unknown.
