This report describes a review of fatal accidents, occurring between 1993 and 1995 inclusive, that involved at least one vehicle classified by STATS 19 as 'other motor vehicle'. This classification commonly includes agricultural vehicles, emergency vehicles, recovery vehicles, construction machinery, and refuse collectors. The study identifies the most common accident types, provides information on accident cause, and attempts to evaluate potential vehicle design changes in order to provide evidence to support possible legislative action and/or further research.
