HIGHWAY ACCIDENT COSTS AND RATES IN TEXAS

A METHOD IS DEVELOPED FOR ESTIMATING COSTS FOR SELECTED TEXAS ACCIDENTS USING COST DATA DEVELOPED FOR ACCIDENT INVOLVEMENTS IN MASSACHUSETTS, ILLINOIS, NEW MEXICO AND UTAH. FROM THE NUMBER AND TYPE (CAR/TRUCK) OF VEHICLES INVOLVED AND THE NUMBER OF FATALLY INJURED PERSONS, ACCIDENT COSTS CAN BE DERIVED USING THE DIRECT COST PER INVOLVEMENT. ACCIDENT RATES FOR SELECTED HIGHWAY DESIGNS AND FOR VARIOUS AVERAGE DAILY TRAFFIC COUNTS ARE PREDICTED AND ANALYZED. /AUTHOR/
