In recent years, Victoria's rate of road crash casualties has dropped significantly. Major contributions towards this improvement have included seat belt and child restraint legislation, drink/driving legislation and vehicle safety features. Nevertheless, problems of road user behaviour resist efforts to change and contribute substantially to the casualty rate, particularly the excessive consumption of alcohol by road users. Advances made through restraint systems are examined and contrasted with efforts to change road user behaviour. /TRRL/
