The Effect of Removing Accidents Repeaters From the Road
Author(s)Ferreira, Joseph Jr.; Keeney, Ralph L.
In newspaper editorials, public commentaries and the like, licensing authorities are often advised to solve the "accident problem" by taking the "nut behind the wheel" off the road. This paper uses six-year driver records of some 8, 000 California drivers to estimate the reduction in accidents that would in fact occur if accident repeaters were removed from the road.
