The aim of this project was to examine the relationship between crime and road safety and to identify what and how pertinent Victorian crime and road safety data can be utilised to examine this relationship. Of specific interest was the relationship between criminal activity of individuals and the likelihood of these individuals being involved in a fatal or serious injury outcome road crash. The key findings of this research suggest that there is a positive relationship between: general… 

Criminal Activities and Road Accidents in Nigerian Transport Industry

Criminal histories of crash and non-crash involved Queensland speeding offenders: evidence supporting the idea that we drive as we live

The relationship between traffic and non-traffic offending in Western Australia

Self-selection policing is an approach whereby serious underlying criminality is detected by an offender’s minor crimes (known as trigger offences). Strategic offences are offences that indicate an

Development of Macro-Level Crime and Collision Prediction Models to Support Data-Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS)

The research developed macro-level prediction models to predict violent crimes and collisions in each traffic analysis zone (TAZ) in Regina using negative binomial regression coupled with the empirical Bayes method to develop two statistical models that predict the long-term mean value for the number of violent crimes/collisions per zone.

Determination of overlapping crime and collision hotzones for focused law enforcement

This study uses a data-driven approach to crimes and traffic safety (DDACTS) approach to identify hotzones where focused law enforcement can reduce the number of crimes and number of collisions simultaneously to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of limited law enforcement resources.

Spatiotemporal Convergence of Crime and Vehicle Crash Hotspots: Additional Consideration for Policing Places

Spatiotemporal analysis of crime and crash data can identify places for police intervention and improved scholarly evaluation and indicate that both violent and property crime are significantly related to vehicle crash counts.

Linking Offence Histories to Accident Causation Using OTS Data

This research project explores the links between offence histories and accident involvement of over 2000 active road users (ARUs) whose accident data were collected by TRL On The Spot (OTS)
