    Full Length Research Paper Traffic Accident Causes and Its Countermeasures on Addis Ababa-Adama Expressway Article (PDF Available) June .   Countermeasures to Keep Vehicles on Roadways In the United States, over half of all traffic fatalities involve a roadway departure. The most cost-effective solution to reduce the number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities due to roadway departure is to strategically focus efforts on implementing countermeasures that will keep the vehicles on.

    ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION AND REPORTING. Scope. This guideline establishes the requirement that each State should have a highway safety program for accident investigation and reporting. Purpose. The purpose of this guideline is to establish a uniform, comprehensive motor vehicle traffic accident investigation program for gathering information. This guide is a basic reference to assist State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) in selecting effective, science-based traffic safety countermeasures for major highway safety problem areas. The guide: o describes major strategies and countermeasures that are relevant to SHSOs; o summarizes their use, effectiveness, costs, and implementation time; and.

    Author/Presenter: Li, Yingfeng; Bai, YongAbstract: Highway work zones create an inevitable disruption to regular traffic flows and have resulted in traffic safety problems. Systematically investigating work zone vehicle crashes is a critical step towards developing effective safety countermeasures to reduce these crashes. The authors utilized a variety of statistical .

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.;]. The seminal Indiana University “Study of Accident Causes” has cemented some false assumptions that must be overcome to yield an effective crash countermeasures policy.

The taxonomy of crash causes and the prevalence of different causes are determined by the investigators, who are biased in different by: 2. The countermeasures in the report were divided into four groups: proven to be effec- tive, likely to be effective, unlikely to be effective or the effects are unknown, and known to have negative consequences.

Effectiveness estimates were developed for a number of the proven to be effective countermeasures. COUNTERMEASURES THAT WORK. Crash injuries and fatalities continue to be some of the most serious public health issues facing our country.

Communities and organizations can use the countermeasures listed below to help save lives and spread highway. The traffic safety situation in mountainous areas of China is becoming more serious with increasing traffic volume and highway mileage, so effectively preventing traffic accidents on mountainous highways and improving the operability of potential accident.

Effectiveness of Distracted Driving Countermeasures: A Review of the Literature According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3, people were killed in in motor vehicle crashes in the United States in which one or more drivers was reported as distracted (National Center for Statistics and Analysis, ).

TFAs are top amongst highway tunnel disasters generating most severe impacts. Gathering statistical material to effectively study TFAs required at least a period of five to ten years as the number of fire accidents are obviously exceptionally fewer than typical traffic accidents (PIARC, ).The project is based on the data collected from the consultation with.

Over a period of 33 months, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) conducted the Large Truck Crash Causation Study (LTCCS).Oflarge truck crashes, a sample of crashes involving 1, large trucks and motor vehicles that were not large trucks, were studied and field.
