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.
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.
