Tin cans versus assault vehicles: the role of crashworthiness and non-aggressiveness in vehicle safety design, promotion and regulation
Tay, Richard S. (2002) Tin cans versus assault vehicles: the role of crashworthiness and non-aggressiveness in vehicle safety design, promotion and regulation. IATSS Research, 26(2), pp. 92-98.
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.
