Safety in Motor-Vehicle Operation and Maintenance 360128
PROGRESS that has been made in the study of industrial accidents, covering factors that are involved in accident prevention in the operation of small cars and trucks and auxiliary equipment, is discussed in this paper.
This paper also deals with the driver viewpoint, giving statistical data and methods for determining responsibility, driver qualifications, and the like.
The problem also is approached from the viewpoint of safety as affected by vehicle design, operation (without respect to the driver), and maintenance.
In collaboration with Mr. Orr, Mr. Newton discusses the problem from the points of view of traffic direction, educational campaigns, driving practices, and highway conditions. He touches on the right types of advertising propaganda and vehicle-design factors; he also gives interesting statistical data resulting from vehicular inspections in various states.
