EVALUATION OF ACCIDENTS INVOLVING BUSES ON MOTORWAYS

AUSWERTUNG DER ANZEIGEN VON UNFAELLEN MIT BUS-BETEILIGUNG AUF AUTOBAHNEN. TEIL 2

ANALYSIS OF INDIVIDUAL BUS ACCIDENTS SHOULD SUPPLY INFORMATION ON THE RELATION BETWEEN SPEED AND ACCIDENT TYPE AND CONSEQUENCES. IN PARTICULAR THE AIM IS TO DETERMINE WHETHER DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ACCIDENTS INVOLVING TEST BUSES - WHICH MAY TRAVEL AT SPEEDS OF UP TO 100 KM/H ON MOTORWAYS - AND OTHER BUSES - RESTRICTED TO 80 KM/H - MAY BE EXPLAINED BY THE DIFFERENCES IN THE SPEEDS TRAVELLED. THE PROJECT WILL ALSO EXAMINE WHETHER, ON THE BASIS OF THE RESULTS OF THIS ANALYSIS, RECOMMENDATIONS CAN BE PUT FORWARD FOR STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENTS IN BUSES TO INCREASE SAFETY.
