Prediction Modelling and its Advantages in Comparison with the Existing Method of Identification of Accident Localities

Predikcni modelovani a jeho vyhody oproti stavajici metode identifikace nehodovych lokalit

Nowadays, the methodology for the identification of hazardous road localities developed by Transport Research Centre (Czech Republic) in 2001 is based on the determination of a limit for the number of accidents when a locality is identified as accident locality. This methodology does not take into account the influence of random variation. Therefore, identified locations are not stable in time, although there were no changes in the infrastructure. In order to improve the identification procedures, a new methodology based on prediction modelling was developed by Transport Research Centre (Czech Republic) in 2012. This paper compares the time stability of locations identified by both mentioned methods.
