POLICE ACCIDENT REPORTING (AUSTRALIA)
This paper attempts to place in proper perspective the value of current traffic accident reports from which statistical data are gathered, and from which statements are sometimes published giving the causes of accidents. Even a most cursory examination of the method in which the numerous accident reports are compiled indicates that subsequent data should be treated with the greatest of caution and certainly should provide the sole guidelines for remedial measures. /TRRL/
