A realistic evaluation is attempted of the underlying human instincts and weaknesses contributing to the complexity of the road accident problem. The thin veneer of civilization is stripped away to reveal the real man, his need for security, his irrationality, and his space-age natural selection. Individual and societal decision making are examined in the light of the preceding, and the personal agony flowing from defective decisions highlighted. The wider ramifications of blind technological forces shaping society are integrated into the accident syndrome.
