Risk factors associated with road accidents among young people in Tuscany (Italy): a cross sectional study

Risk factors associated with road accidents among young people in Tuscany (Italy): a cross sectional study

Igiene E Sanita Pubblica 69(3): 307-324

In most countries, national statistics institutes either do not measure or underestimate the impact of behavioral aspects as causes of road accidents. To bridge this gap, the Regional Health Agency of Tuscany (Italy) created the EDIT project, which evaluates driving behaviors and other lifestyle risk factors in a sample of secondary school students. Study results show that driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs or while being distracted by cigarette smoking or the use of mobile phones are the risk factors most frequently associated with traffic accidents.
