Abstract : Automobile accident histories were obtained from a sample of 84 U. S. Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The number of accidents in the preceding 12 months yielded a correlation of zero with accidents prior to that 12-month period. It was concluded that prior accident experience does not yield a reliable measure of automobile driving behavior in U. S. Marines.
