RODRIGUEZ-GUZMAN, Sandra et al. Mobility, traffic accidents, and associated factors among Guatemalan university students. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.4, pp.735-745. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0102-311X00109713.

The aim of this study was to identify and quantify the association between the amount of driving (km/year), traffic accidents, and other factors among university students in Guatemala. A cross-sectional study was performed during the 2010-2011 school year in a sample of 1,016 drivers who completed a self-administered questionnaire that assessed mobility patterns, use of safety accessories, driving style, and automobile crashes. The results showed a positive association between amount of driving and greater involvement in risky driving (adjusted regression coefficient 3.25, 95%CI: 2.23-4.27, for the highest level of exposure). More frequent involvement in risky driving and older age showed the strongest associations with traffic accidents. Although the amount of driving was positively associated with a higher accident rate, most of this association was found to be mediated by involvement in risky driving practices.
