Report No. 85

Austria.- Legislation in Austria1 represents a pruning down of the available defences and a consequential expansion of liability. In regard to a road traffic accident, the law of that country2 allows only the defence that the accident was due to an unavoidable event that is caused neither by a defect in the condition of the vehicle nor by failure of its mechanism.
