The Precrash, Crash, and Postcrash Parts of the Highway Safety Program 680237
The author suggests that many automobile accidents and resultant injuries can be avoided. He discusses the problem in three phases: precrash, crash, and postcrash. Precrash conditions include driver disabilities such as drinking and senility, the road, and the vehicle. The crash phase deals with the vehicle’s interior and exterior design and the crash design of the highway; the postcrash phase discusses emergency response systems such as communication, ambulance attendants, first aid knowledge, and emergency hospital facilities.
