Securite Routiere: Efficacite, Subvention et Reglementation


  • Boyer, M.
  • Dionne, G.


In this paper, we present an economic analysis of road safety emphasizing market failures due to externalities and moral hazard. We also examine governmental actions such as taxes and subsidies and regulation which may reduce inefficiencies. Dans cet article nous présentons une analyse économique de la sécurité routière en mettant l’accent sur les inefficacités engendrées par les externalités et le risque moral. Nous abordons également des mécanismes susceptibles de contrer les inefficacités tels les taxes et subsides et la réglementation gouvernementale.
