ROAD ACCIDENTS : THE HEART OF THE MATTER

The author describes a study in which international road deaths and their trend over the years were compared for different countries in order to assess the efficiency of the road safety measures and legislation of those countries. The study involved an extensive statistical analysis which was fully described in an earlier paper (see IRRD abstract no. 208994). The results of the study and later work are discussed in outline and the author concludes that it seems probable that the law is the principle factor in accident causation and that it should be drastically reformed. This is a controversial proposal, which the author hopes might lead to a change in public attitude. /TRRL/
