Abstract

North Carolina crash data for 1972, with a follow-up for 1981, were examined to identify driver violations as reported by the investigating officer. This information was linked to the driver history file to determine whether there was a conviction, and, if so, for how serious a violation. Categorical analyses of the data showed systematic biases in who is convicted once a violation occurs. Nonwhites, drivers aged 55 and over, and drivers of older vehicles had a higher likelihood of being convicted of a same or higher level violation.
