INTRODUCTORY REMARKS TO THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL SKID PREVENTION CONFERENCE

The objectives of this conference are noted and brief comments are made on research efforts to improve the tractive resistance of the roadway. This conference which emphasized the implementation of research findings, presented an overview of current knowledge, demonstrated how this knowledge can be applied to improve safety, and attempted to determine what further steps must be taken to learn how existing knowledge can be applied, or what further research is needed. Research effort has been most concerted in the measurement of skid resistance. Driver education, and automobile and tire manufacture are other areas of research. It is noted that there must be a systematic effort to optimize the relation of the driver and the machine to the driving environment. Brief comments are made on the First International Skid Prevention Conference.
