Letter from the president

The 22nd ITMA world congress in Chongqing was a great success. All arrangements were superb and the scientific quality of the presentations and research behind them were better than ever before. At the congress professor Zheng Guo Wang also presented a new comprehensive text book in "Modern Traffic Medicine". This was a thick volume covering all different aspects of what we consider to be Traffic Medicine. Most chapters are in Chinese but with a short summary in English. For all Chinese doctors, psychologists, engineers, decision makers and traffic police officers this must mean a great leap forward for Chinese Traffic Medicine.
