Road Design and Road Safety

Nature volume 140, page 650 (09 October 1937) | Download Citation



THE causation of road accidents and the measures which can be devised for their prevention are subjects of close study all over the world, but despite all the efforts which have been made, the fact has to be faced that in Great Britain, during the past ten years, a daily average of nineteen persons have lost their lives on the roads. This gives emphasis to the importance of a paper published, with the discussion to which it gave rise, in the Journal of the Institution of Civil Engineers (December, 1936), entitled "Road Design and Road Safety", and presented by Mr. Frederick C. Cook, chief technical adviser to the Ministry of Transport.
