The prisoner's dilemma and vehicle safety: Some policy implications

Tay, Richard S. (2002) The prisoner's dilemma and vehicle safety: Some policy implications. Journal of Transport Economics and Policy, 36(3), pp. 491-495.

Abstract

Using the classic prisoner's dilemma framework in game theory, this paper argues that the current emphasis on occupant protection may result in a pareto inferior outcome. Shifting the relative emphasis from increasing occupant protection to non-aggressiveness of a vehicle, however, is likely to improve the environmental quality as well as reducing the road trauma.

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.
