BAMBAREN, Celso  and  CHU, Meilind. Regulation of transport and traffic accidents by motor vehicles in Peru. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.4, pp.305-310. ISSN 1729-214X.

Between 1998 and 2012, there have been more than one million two hundred thousand land motor vehicle accidents with 49 000 deaths in Peru. Despite the adoption of several regulations on traffic and road safety, there is no a trend towards fewer fatal injuries. Regulations appear not to have a protective effect on the occupants of vehicles and pedestrians, because the number of fatal injuries has increased in both groups. The statistics might have variations on the type of users, affected by the number of accidents, and fatal injuries related to the events in urban and peri-urban roads, and highways

Keywords : Accidents; Traffic; automobiles; multiple trauma.
