Critical Reasons for Crashes Investigated in the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey

  title={Critical Reasons for Crashes Investigated in the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey},
  author={Santokh Singh},
The National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey (NMVCCS), conducted from 2005 to 2007, was aimed at collecting on-scene information about the events and associated factors leading up to crashes involving light vehicles. Several facets of crash occurrence were investigated during data collection, namely the pre-crash movement, critical pre-crash event, critical reason, and the associated factors. A weighted sample of 5,470 crashes was investigated over a period of two and a half years, which…

Applying Bayesian data mining to measure the effect of vehicular defects on crash severity
7 years of traffic crash data from Louisiana are used to investigate the association between crash severity and vehicle-defect types by applying a Bayesian data mining approach and showed that vehicle age is associated with severe injury crashes.
Investigating Effect of Driver-, Vehicle-, and Road-Related Factors on Location-Specific Crashes with Naturalistic Driving Data
According to NHTSA, traffic accidents cost the United States billions of U.S. dollars each year. Intersection accidents alone accounted for 23% of the 32,675 motor crash deaths in 2014. With the
Investigation of driver behavior during crash and near-crash events using naturalistic driving data
Various studies demonstrated that the human factors, driver performance, and the interactions among humans and other elements in the transportation systems significantly contributed to the traffic
Utilizing crash and violation data to assess unsafe driving actions
This study employed two approaches to study contributory factors to crashes in the most hazardous interstate, I-80, in Wyoming by employing crash and citation data sets and indicated that there are substantial differences across different driver actions for crash and violation data.

A range of potential safety targets is presented as a guide for policymakers, regulators, and AV developers to assist in evaluating the safety of automated driving technologies for public use.
Impact of traffic Enforcement on Traffic Safety
Examination of the impact of different types of traffic citations on MVCs on two hazardous main US highways in Wyoming US-30 and US-26 showed that higher numbers of speeding and seat belt citations reduce the number of crashes significantly.
OF DISSERTATION EFFECT OF SOCIOECONOMIC AND DEMOGRAPHIC FACTORS OF DRIVER RESIDENCE ON CRASH OCCURRENCE In the U.S., road traffic crashes are a leading cause of death. Crash data from the state of
Evaluating the safety effectiveness of downgrade warning signs on vehicle crashes on Wyoming mountain passes
Abstract Highway safety on mountain passes is a major concern to most highway agencies in the Western United States. Large trucks are known to be disproportionately affected on downgrades which
In-depth analysis of crash contributing factors and potential ADAS interventions among at-risk drivers using the SHRP 2 naturalistic driving study
These data provide stakeholders with a comprehensive understanding of critical factors among at-risk drivers as well as suggestions for ADAS improvements based on naturalistic data that can be used to optimize ADAS for driver-specific errors and help develop more robust vehicle test procedures.
Quantification of Rear-End Crash Risk and Analysis of Its Influencing Factors Based on a New Surrogate Safety Measure
This study provides a new surrogate safety measure that can better identify rear-end crash risks in a more reliable way and can be applied to real-time crash risk prediction in driver assistance systems.
