OBJECTIVE The objective of this research was to study the risk factors that significantly influence the severity of intersection crashes for vehicle occupants, as well as for pedestrians and other vulnerable road users. METHODS Logistic regression was applied as the method in this study to analyze a data set of intersection crashes involving casualties in(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this research was to examine the effects on driving performance of a prototype intersection collision warning system (ICWS) that is based on the dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) technology concept. METHODS An experimental study with 32 participants using a driving simulator was conducted to examine the effects of ICWS(More)
An important part of any model of vehicle crashes is the development of a procedure to estimate crash injury severity. After reviewing existing models of crash severity, this paper outlines the development of a modelling approach aimed at measuring the injury severity of people in two-vehicle road crashes. This model can be incorporated into a discrete(More)
OBJECTIVES Engaging in active transport modes (especially walking) is a healthy and environmentally friendly alternative to driving and may be particularly beneficial for older adults. However, older adults are a vulnerable group: they are at higher risk of injury compared with younger adults, mainly due to frailty and may be at increased risk of collision(More)
OBJECTIVE This study applied geospatial analysis to explore spatial trends in cycling-related injury in Melbourne, Australia, in order to identify an area where injury density was reducing against expectation. The crash characteristics and cycling environment of the identified area were examined to better understand factors related to cycling safety. (More)
Walking is fundamental to human mobility, but its perceived importance as a transport mode has fallen dramatically in past decades. The benefits of walking for society are numerous, including improved health, reduced traffic and enhanced social connection. It has become a community health priority to introduce some of these benefits to primary school(More)
Previous research has provided little insight into factors that influence the probability of bus drivers being at-fault in bus-involved accidents. In this study, an analysis was conducted on accident data compiled by a bus company that include an assessment on whether the bus driver was deemed by the company to hold primary responsibility for accident(More)
This paper summarises findings on road safety performance and bus-involved accidents in Melbourne along roads where bus priority measures had been applied. Results from an empirical analysis of the accident types revealed significant reduction in the proportion of accidents involving buses hitting stationary objects and vehicles, which suggests the effect(More)
Safety is a key concern in the design, operation and development of light rail systems including trams or streetcars as they impose crash risks on road users in terms of crash frequency and severity. The aim of this study is to identify key traffic, transit and route factors that influence tram-involved crash frequencies along tram route sections in(More)
