Recognizing that highway death and injury represent a major pandemic, Dr. Roberts believes the medical profession should accord this problem much more attention. He is convinced of "the potential key function of physicians in spearheading a national program of enlightened traffic accident prevention. . . ." He argues that "the collective effort of doctors in reducing the accident toll merely by disseminating general counsel to their driver-patients should not be minimized." He is therefore especially concerned that "the medical profession continues to play only a minor and largely passive role in the epidemiology of accidents. . . ."
