Although,道路InAutomobile-Bicycle-PedestrianOccurred duringRoad traffic accident(As automobiles, motorcycles, and bicycles are most commonly used and most frequently used in society as a whole, the number of accidents is higher than that of ships and aircraft.)

In this encyclopedia,There is no other article in this article that gives an overview of traffic accidents in a broad sense, that is, with a view of all aspects of railways, seas, aviation, and roads, so at the beginning of this article OverviewThen,In the section below, we also describe the details of the most familiar traffic accidents, road traffic accidents...

In many countries, acts that cause traffic accidents are prohibited or regulated by law, and caution is required.

Japanese traffic accidents

Definition of traffic accident

The laws and regulations that define the definition of traffic accidents include:

  1. Road Traffic Law: Vehicles on the road (Automobile,Motorized bicycle,BicycleSuch asnon-motorized vehicle,trolley bus,Tram) Traffic damage or damage to persons (Article 67, Paragraph 2 of the Road Traffic Act)
  2. Car Safe Driving Center Act: Including those that occur outside the road in the items specified in Article 67, Paragraph 2 of the Road Traffic Act
  3. Automotive Damages Protection Act: A person who provides a car for his/her own operation shall be liable for the damage caused by the damage of the life or body of others due to the operation. (Article 3 of the Compensation Law)
  4. Ministry of Health, Labor and WelfareDisease, injury and death cause classification: Basic classification code V01-V99

and so on. Generally speaking, “traffic accident” refers to a traffic accident under the Road Traffic Law.

Scope of traffic accident and liability for damages

The road traffic law does not include traffic accidents as follows.

  • Accidents outside the "road" under the Road Traffic Act
    • "Road" in the Road Traffic Act isRoad lawStipulate in道路,Road transport lawStipulate inThe motorwayAnd all places for general transportation.It is not issued for accidents outside the "road" under the Road Traffic Act.

    • In addition, the fact that the issuance of a traffic accident certificate and the obligation to report a traffic accident to the police match has not been verified.[Annotation 1]Therefore, this also requires caution in the case of an actual accident.
    • In addition, whether or not a traffic accident certificate is issued and whether or not the victim is obliged to compensate for damages are irrelevant, and whether or not the victim is obliged to compensate for damages does not depend on whether or not the certificate is issued.
    • Driver's licenseAs a requirement of, "manslaughter outside the road" was newly established, which also affected the Road Traffic Act.
  • Accidents not caused by traffic such as vehicles
    • For example, when a car with the engine turned off naturally explodes and burns, a person who is in a regular place such as a car is caught in the door or window of the car, or When a vehicle parked in a parking lot is damaged by a disaster such as a cliff collapse.If an accident occurs due to contact with another person or vehicle traveling on the road by opening or closing the door, or due to the danger of contact, a traffic accident will occur.In addition, a traffic accident also occurs when an accident occurs due to an external factor such as an explosion or a cliff collapse while driving a vehicle or the like.
  • PedestrianSingle accident or collision between pedestrians
    • In particular, accidents between vehicles considered to be "pedestrians" under the Road Traffic Act, or between them and pedestrians, are not traffic accidents under the same law.Cart,TrolleyEtc.non-motorized vehicleTherefore, if it is on a road under the Road Traffic Act, it will be a traffic accident.

Whether or not it corresponds to a traffic accident under the Road Traffic Act, legal liability for damages, and furtherAutomobile liability insuranceAnd the payment criteria for voluntary car insurance are largely unrelated.

  • Automotive Damages Protection ActArticle 3 "A person who provides a car for his/her own use shall be responsible for compensating for the damage caused by this when the life or body of another person is harmed by the operation." The following precedents are related to the provisions of.
    • When unloading a log of raw wood loaded on an ordinary freight vehicle parked on a road on the private land site of the Mokuzai Mfg. Co., Ltd., the forklift fork pushes the log from the loading platform of the freight vehicle to the ground on the opposite side. Therefore, the accident in which the child who was present died under the log was caused by "using the freight vehicle according to the usage of the device".
    • When a large freight vehicle loaded with timber is parked on the road and another forklift is used to unload the timber of the freight vehicle, the forklift is placed in a vacant lot off the road to adjust the height of the fork. Although it was stopped, the fork part was sticking out on the road, and the fork part collided with another car that had been traveling on the road from time to time, and the accident that injured the driver of the car caused the freight car to " Although it was not caused by "using the device according to how it is used", there is still an obligation to compensate for damages under Article 709 of the Civil Code.
  • For accidents where a traffic accident certificate is not issued, basicallyNot covered by liability insurance. However, in the car insurance,NormallyIt will be covered.

Perpetrator's responsibility

Initial support

Article 72 of the Road Traffic Act imposes the following obligations on drivers of vehicles, etc. related to traffic accidents.

  1. Obligation to stop driving immediately (do not leave the site immediately after an accident, etc.)
  2. Obligation to rescue the injured (moving the injured to a safe place and receiving medical treatment as soon as possible)
  3. Obligation to prevent road hazards (duty to prevent secondary accidents)
  4. Obligation to report to police officers the date and time of occurrence, the status of casualties and damage to property, post-accident measures, and loads.
  5. Obligation to obey an order to stay on-site until the police officer arrives if he/she deems it necessary (usually by all means)

In addition, in order to fulfill its civil responsibilities, it is necessary to:

  1. Identification of the other person
  2. Contacting a voluntary insurance company (responsibility for insurance contracts)

It is generally said that about 60% of drivers do not know the initial response to a traffic accident.[6]

Criminal liability

Impact of traffic accident

Physical impact

When the impact of a traffic accident on the mind and body is the lightest, it is intact (not only is there no injury or bone fracture,WhiplashIn the worst case, a collision with a running vehicle has a large impact, and if it is hit, it may hit the whole body or head or break the head. There will be cases of immediate death.If you are hit by a vehicle without being hit, you may be caught in a wheel, trampled, etc., causing amputation, pressure, internal organs rupture, orbrain,内 臓,Blood vesselThere is a situation where the prototype does not stay, such as popping out or being scattered at the scene of an accident resulting in injury or death, and it may lead to death in a tragic state.

The problem of mental sequelae other than the injuries such as the anxiety of the injured suffering mentally immediately after the accident has increased, and the qualification system for emergency medical emergency doctors, doctor helicopters, etc. have recently been enhanced, but the frequent occurrence of traffic accidents is a problem. In Aichi Prefecture (also described in the table below), Kasugai City conducted the first nationwide test as a "doctor car" model, promoting communication with the standby doctor at the main hospital while flying the vital signs of the injured by radio waves. A national qualification for emergency paramedics centered on firefighters who can use defibrillators (ambulators) in the field has been established. The car was jointly developed with Toyota Corporation. Can be done without medical qualificationAEDContributed to the development of the installation. While consideration is being given not only to the body of the injured but also to the mind and spirit, there are many human, equipment, and budget barriers. General recognition required an awareness and cooperation system with the media such as NHK and other media.

Effects on the body

Listed in order of severity,Cervical cord injury, Chest injury, airway obstruction (face injury, neck injury, etc.), abdominal cavitypelvisSuch as damage. Compared to these, deaths from limbs are less likely to occur.

In particular, cervical spinal cord injury, even if it survivesQuality of lifeIs significantly reduced. Immediately after the injury, even if there is no damage, it is likely to occur even if the victim inadvertently moves the neck. It is necessary to thoroughly ensure that if you encounter a traffic accident, do not move your head, neck, or shoulder carelessly. (JPTEC-JATEC(See also section)

Accidents under similar conditions will differ greatly depending on the condition of the collision, the victim's belongings, condition, physical and mental condition at that time, and the weather. When a pedestrian or a person who rides a bicycle collides with a very low-speed car or motorcycle, or when the pedestrian has a large bag and hits the bag, there is no human injury or it is close to it. In some cases.

Compared to accidents due to other factors such as occupational accidents and natural disasters, it is more likely that the victim will be severely impacted on the head and waist,Persistent consciousness disorderBeginning withSequential disabilityThere are quite a few examples in which there remains. Also, if you have a strong impact on your brain,Higher brain dysfunctionMay lead to(Head injury,Traumatic brain injurySee also).


Pedestrian TheBicycleA collision with or even a collision between pedestrians may cause a fatal accident by hitting the head on the road surface.

In recent years, automobile manufacturers have taken the following measures in consideration of safety for pedestrians.

  • bumperPosition of the adult from the position of the thigh/pelvis of the adult to the position of the lower leg.
  • Even if the upper body collides with the front of the passenger car using the above-mentioned part as a fulcrum, the head should hit the hood instead of the windshield.(By making the bonnet member a shock absorbing type, fatal injury to the chest and head may occur. Make it harder)

Number of deaths

The statistics of fatalities in accidents are mainly used when the victims of an accident that were collected by the police died within 24 hours after the accident occurred, and the number of people below is also basically the number of deaths within 24 hours. is there. Other police statistics include deaths within 30 days. Furthermore,Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare OfDemographic statisticsからlandIt is clear from the number of deaths within one year after the accident caused by the traffic accident in道路The number excluding those who are not judged to be the above-mentioned traffic accident is included as "dead in the welfare statistics"[21].

2021/The number of fatalities in traffic accidents within 24 hours is 2,636[22]As of the end of September 2021, the number of automobiles owned in Japan was about 11 million.[23]By comparison, the number of cars owned was about 38 shortly after the war.[24]1950/Less than 4,202 people, showing how the death toll has dropped dramatically. this is,1949/Less than 24 deaths within 3,790 hours of1948/It is the smallest number since the start of statistics. Also,Emergency medical careThere is a misconception that the number of deaths has not decreased so much by surviving for more than 24 hours due to the development of the disease, but the number of deaths within 2021 days in 30 is 3,205.[25], The death toll within one year of 2019 is 1[21]And both have decreased as well as the death toll within 24 hours. Within 30 days the number of deaths began to collect statistics1993/Since then, the number of deaths within one year has started to be collected.1965/It has been the smallest number since then[26].

Looking at age, the percentage of elderly people aged 2021 and over in 65 in the number of fatalities in traffic accidents was about 57.7%, the highest percentage ever.This is due to the increase in the elderly population and the higher case fatality rate of the elderly than in other age groups.[27].. In addition, according to a survey by the Traffic Accident Analysis Center in June 2016, the number of pedestrian casualties (including cases where pedestrians did not violate) was significantly higher at 6 years old.[28], 2.5 times that of an adult[28], About twice that of the elderly[28]Is. The cause is that there are more opportunities to act away from parents such as going to and from school, without having acquired sufficient traffic rules and the ability to detect danger.[28].

The reason why the traffic accident incidence rate, which has been flat for about 30 years, has begun to decrease is to reduce the damage caused by accidents such as airbags during the Second Traffic War.Passive safetyBecame popular as a safety measure, but in the 2010s the accident itself was prevented.Active safetyThe fact that has begun to spread is mentioned. From around 2010Anti-skid device,Collision damage reduction brakeなどが普及しだしており、2014年には自動車アセスメントに予防安全性能アセスメントが追加されている。2016年には年間交通事故による死亡者数が1949年の67年ぶりに3000人レベルにまで減少して、飲酒運転の取り締まりと交通安全文化の普及で交通事故死亡者が最も多かった時期に比べると4分の1の水準に減少した。さらに全交通事故の発生件数も2015年より7.1%減の49万9232件だった[36].. In FY2017, the liability insurance premium was reduced because the accident rate fell due to the spread of technologies that reduce accidents such as automatic braking (collision damage reduction brakes).[37]..
