Predicting Urban Accident Rates from Road and Traffic Characteristics
Traffic accidents can be considered to be the result of hazards resulting from a combination of three kinds of variables: those associated with the road, those concerned with the surrounding traffic, and those involved in the maneuver being carried out by the driver. Because of the complexity and number of relationships possible, accident rates vary widely between locations. The research described here attempted to provide a starting point for more disaggregate prediction of traffic accident rates in urban areas.
