Speed and accidents: use of in-vehicle data recorders

This report examines sources of information used in establishing a more robust relationship between vehicle speed and accident risk than has been available. This report documents discussions with a supplier of a commercial accident recorder and reports on the results of a pilot study examining the use of speed estimates produced for the Victorian Single Vehicle Fatal Accident Study. The pilot study was designed to confirm the availability of speed estimates, demonstrate the feasibility of collecting control speeds at accident times, and to establish indicative study costs and a study plan for further work.
