Safety Evaluation Index of Driving Environment of Mountain Highway Based on Cluster Analysis

According to the risk ingredients of mountain highway and the selecting principles of evaluation index, through analyzing interrelation of road facilities, natural environment and driving safety, the main factors as well as their various combinations of mountain highway driving risk were determined by using Delphi and clustering analysis methods. Then, safety evaluation index of mountain highway driving environment was established, which contained three arrangements with five sub-factors in two aspects including road environment and climate environment. And the indices were analyzed and contrasted. This method can provide a basis for the scientific safety evaluation of driving environment of mountain highway.
