Death, disability and the social consequences of road accidents are a hot topic nowadays. Should we increase sanctions that penalize offenders or increase the likelihood of law enforcement?

It is one of the critical questions posed in the present work, the result of a thorough investigation into a problem that chronically affects the current Portuguese reality, as well as that of many other countries, and which has repercussions in the most varied spheres: from the social, economics, politics, passing through the mentalities and behaviors that urgently need to be transformed. Submitting a rigorous analysis of Road Accidents, using a multidisciplinary methodology, is the objective of the work presented here, seeking to understand this all too often fatal equation.
