This chapter summarizes the main conclusions from a nine-month, DETR funded , UK survey considering the in-car safety and security of women drivers and passengers. The research included accident and injury analysis and qualitative investigations of car usage and driving experience with an emphasis on perceived safety and security. The main findings were that women sustained a greater degree of, and a different injury pattern in, accidents to their male counterparts. In addition perceived safety influences their driving behaviour. The chapter concludes with a set of recommendations to address these issues.
