Abstract : There is general agreement that human factors are now the main causal source of traffic accidents. It follows that major improvements in road safety can be obtained only if vehicle manufacturers and the administrators of road-transport systems are prepared to give a higher priority than is given at present to the achievement of an acceptable match between the characteristics of man, machine and environment.
