3.3. Traffic accidents.-
Traffic accidents have developed into one of the great economic and social problems of today. The personal sufferings and economic losses of survivors and disabled persons are great and so are the economic losses and the inconvenience caused to the society, through loss of production, increased social expenses, and strain on the capacity of hospitals and other institutions. These considerations have, in many countries, led to the evolution of special rules applicable to liability for motor vehicles accidents.
