Resumen From an analysis of traffic accident statistics for united Germany, it is concluded that the accident risk of truck drivers is significantly higher in former East Germany than in the original Federal Republic. Poor road conditions and an average vehicle age of 17 to 18.5 years (depending on type), as compared with 6.8 to 8.9 years in West Germany, are the main contributing factors. In addition, competition has led to long hours at the wheel without rest. Measures to prevent accidents include more transport of hazardous materials by rail and water and better training of drivers. Summaries in English, French and German.
