Abstract

This paper examines the policy implications of the traditional approach to vehicle safety, which tends to focus on the crashworthiness of a vehicle and its occupant protection capability, and an alternative approach that focus more the non-aggressiveness of the vehicle. We argue that this alternative approach will improve road safety as well as social equity and environmental quality.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
