North, M.A., 1974. SOME STATISTICS OF FIRE IN ROAD VEHICLES. Fire Research Notes 1011
A study has been made of the statistics of fire in road vehicles during 1971. It is shown that the vehicle fire frequency depends on the number of vehicle-miles travelled, although the constant of proportionality varies with the type of vehicle considered. It is estimated that the risk to the individual of fire death or injury, for each hour exposed to the danger, is rather higher in road vehicles than in most building occupancies but that the fire risk forms only a very small part of the total risk of road transport to the user.
