Objectives: To link offending behaviour and accident causation.
An analysis of road crashes assessed in the On the Spot research project.
Road traffic collisions are often the result of risk-taking.
Research is limited into the links between offending and accident involvement.
More work should be done with fleet managers to monitor the offence histories of HGV and LGV drivers.
