GENERAL PROBLEMS OF THE METHODS TO PROMOTE TRAFFIC SAFETY. FINDINGS OF TRAFFIC CRIMINOLOGY

The connection between personality and accident-proneness has not been definitely established. A correlation is observed between accident-proneness and traffic or other crimes, and between traffic offences and general crime. Drunken drivers present significant characteristics. Effectiveness of criminal justice depends on workable legislation, quick and certain enforcement and moderate and uniform sentencing. /TRRL/
