Abstract

The recent literature on surgery has been full of references to the various problems confronting surgeons due to traffic accidents. New types of fractures have appeared and new technics have been devised to handle situations caused by the increased use of the automobile. In spite of the fact that the physician and his allied specialist the psychiatrist should be deeply interested in this subject, it seems that their eyes have scarcely been turned upon it. The manufacturers themselves have recognized the fact that the human element is an extremely important one in causing accidents, and law enforcement officers, judges and traffic administrators, particularly some of those at Harvard University, have emphasized the point that the physical and mental condition of the driver should be studied and that the problem created by physical and mental abnormalities in the driver is deserving of much more attention.
