Mortal motorcycle motor bicycle and cycle accidents data from the legal medicine sector parma italy 1973 1982



Mortal motorcycle motor bicycle and cycle accidents data from the legal medicine sector parma italy 1973 1982



Acta Bio-Medica de l'Ateneo Parmense 57(1-2): 53-62



The data of the Institute of Legal Medicine and Insurance of the University of Parma regarding mortal motorcycle, motorbicycle and cycling accidents for a ten year period is cited (1973-1982) (296 cases). The data show a very high incidence of cranio-facial lesions (83.5%) which is the absolute most frequent cause of death (58.5%). The appeal for the promulgation of a rider's helmet as obligatory in Italy thus becomes an urgency. The high percentage of mortal accidents amongst cyclists and the substancial corrispondence to the traumatology of motorcyclists senders towards this cathgory of road users the need for similar preventive measures. If these can't be resolved with helmets for practical reasons, it is necessary to solicitate more severe and drastic control for the respect of circulation regulations by them. On the other hand it is necessary to take measures capable of garanteeing a way (lane for cyclists).
