  • Accident; analysis and prevention
A large number of studies have been made to assess the relationship between risk factors and accident occurrence. A risk factor is any factor that makes an accident more likely to occur. Very many risk factors have been identified, for example, being under the influence of alcohol while driving, driving on slippery roads, entering complex junctions, or driving in hours of darkness. Few studies have been made to determine whether the associations between risk factors and accident occurrence… Expand
Analysis of factors influencing the vehicle damage level in fatal truck-related accidents and differences in rural and urban areas
Accidents involving large trucks very often end up with deadly consequences. Innocent people getting killed are acknowledged globally as one of the traffic safety greatest problems and challenges.Expand
Risk factors for extremely serious road accidents: Results from national Road Accident Statistical Annual Report of China
TLDR
This study identifies professional driver, fatigue, large vehicle type, overload, and terrain as significant risk factors of extremely serious road accidents in China, and targeted and preventative measures could be taken based on the findings. Expand
Changing patterns of motor vehicle collision risk during winter storms: A new look at a pervasive problem.
TLDR
A matched-pair, retrospective cohort method was used to estimate injury and non-injury collision risks for a mid-sized urban community based on a new definition of winter storm events that captures a greater portion of time during which drivers respond to hazardous weather and road surface conditions. Expand
Life-threatening alcohol-related traffic crashes in adverse weather: a double-matched case–control analysis from Canada
TLDR
Adverse weather was associated with an increased risk of a life-threatening alcohol-related traffic crash and an awareness of this risk might inform warnings to patients about traffic safety and counselling alternatives to drinking and driving. Expand
Determinants of fatal car accident risk in Finote Selam town, Northwest Ethiopia
TLDR
Fatal road traffic accidents happened due to drivers’ lack of sufficient driving experience and low educational level, and it was seen that drivers who drove their vehicles could minimize the occurrence of fatal traffic accident. Expand
Designs for Safer Signal-Controlled Intersections by Statistical Analysis of Accident Data at Accident Blacksites
TLDR
It was found that the accident counts at signal-controlled intersections could be reduced by altering the lane-marking patterns using a combination of well-established lane-based design methods and new governing constraint sets to enhance the safety controls for turning traffic derived from the statistical analysis. Expand
Geospatial and environmental analysis of road traffic accidents in the city of Resistencia, Argentina.
TLDR
This study shows the city of Resistencia to be in a situation of urban vulnerability due not only to its socioeconomic status but also to the unequal development compared to neighboring cities, a reality that fosters an unfavorable environment. Expand
Finding On Roads Risk And Blind Spot Warning System Iot Techniques And Hbrp Algorithm
The variety of accidents in India are highest in the world. The proper quantity of accident variety may additionally be greater than documented. One man or woman dies in each 4 min. Every day 1,374Expand
Measuring hotel employee perceived job risk: dimensions and scale development
Purpose – The main purpose of this study was to identify the dimensions of hotel employees’ job risk perceptions and develop a measurement scale for this construct. Design/methodology/approach –Expand
Utilizing solar energy for anti-icing road surfaces using hydronic heating pavement with low temperature
During summer, the surface temperature of an asphalt road pavement can rise up to 70°C due to absorbed solar radiation. The high temperature degrades the performance of the asphalt concrete byExpand

Effects of Adverse Weather on Traffic Crashes
Adverse weather obviously has an impact on vehicle crash rates on roads and highways. However, it would be valuable to quantify the extent to which weather conditions affect the crash rate. To doExpand

  • 2012
TLDR
The principal results using accident data from 2003 to 2007 are updated, and the new model relating to occupant protection are related to an index that had been developed previously to analyse changes over time in the secondary safety of the car fleet. Expand
The mixed effects of precipitation on traffic crashes.

TLDR
The lagged effects of precipitation across days may be explained by the clearing of oil that accumulates on roads during dry periods or by the conditioning of people to drive more safely in wet conditions, which is likely to be beneficial. Expand
Effects on accidents of changes in the use of studded tyres in major cities in Norway: a long-term investigation.
TLDR
Effects on accidents of changes in the use of studded tyres in major cities in Norway were evaluated by means of negative binomial regression models, using city and day as the unit of analysis, and including more than twenty explanatory variables in order to control for confounding factors. Expand
Associations between substance use among car and van drivers in Norway and fatal injury in road traffic accidents
TLDR
The aim of this study was to calculate the odds ratio (OR) for fatal injury in road traffic accidents after using alcohol or drugs by using a case-control design, and it is likely that the observed high ORs are not only related to the risk posed by the substance alone, but confounding factors and study design are also important. Expand
International trends in alcohol and drug use among vehicle drivers.
TLDR
Roadside surveys showed a reduction of drunk driving over time in the studied countries; however, the pattern varied within and between different countries; the proportion of fatal RTCs related to non-alcohol drugs increased, particularly for cannabis and stimulants. Expand
A new method for assessing the risk of accident associated with darkness.
TLDR
It is found that the risk of an injury accident increases by nearly 30% in darkness in urban areas, by nearly 50% in rural areas, and by about 40% for urban and rural areas combined (adjusted estimate). Expand
Development of accident prediction models for pedestrian crossings
TLDR
A negative binomial model was estimated for predicting accidents at unsignalised pedestrian crossings based on accident data from 52 crossings in Warsaw and shows that the number of accidents is less-than-proportional to both pedestrian and motorised traffic daily volumes. Expand
Prevalence of alcohol and drugs among Norwegian motor vehicle drivers: a roadside survey.
TLDR
Illegal drugs and psychoactive medicinal drugs were more prevalent among females than males, among drivers stopped on working days rather than weekends, and among those who reported annual driving distances less than 16,000 km. Expand
Why have fatality rates among older drivers declined? The relative contributions of changes in survivability and crash involvement.
TLDR
Higher death risk was more important than higher crash risk in explaining older drivers' elevated fatality rates per VMT relative to middle-aged drivers during 1995-1998, and the contribution of heighteneddeath risk was even greater during 2005-2008. Expand
