TitleThe risk compensation tambourine - risk and freedom: the record of road safety regulation (book review)
AuthorsMcLean AJ
Year1987
TypeJournal Article
AbstractJohn Adams' writings on the concept of risk compensation have been described as "highly spurious and bogus" (1) and as "doing the academic world a disservice". (2) But he has also been described as "one of the most original thinkers in transport today: one who is not afraid to butcher a few sacred cows". (3) In this book, Risk and Freedom, Adams gives us a reasonable opportunity to assess his knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
