ABSTRACT

The study aims to analyze factors that influence passengers’ responses to traffic accidents, such as their recognition of accidents after they were sent to the emergency room. Among a total of 127 respondents, 41 patients lost consciousness and 86 patients were without loss of sight. No significant difference was found between the two groups on average age (p = 0.984) and age distribution (p = 0.736). Only 26 people knew the location of their car, and only about 55 people owned the towing company’s business cards. 29 people had other families or acquaintances who had the information of their car, but 17 had no idea about their car. There was no difference in average age among the four groups (p = 0.329). In conclusion, it is found that traffic accidents could cause anxiety and a high probability of short-term memory loss, particularly for female drivers.
