Accident prevention is a concern of all physicians. The contribution to the total accident mortality and morbidity made by motor vehicle accidents is impressive and shows no sign of lessening; in 1964, almost 48,000 persons died in this manner. There are good reasons to believe that this figure could be lowered. The work of Mosely and his group in recent years at Harvard showed that a number of important factors could be implicated in the causation of fatalities from this category. One of these is mechanical failure of the vehicle.
The present study examines the possible role of mechanical failure
