ROADWAY CHARACTERISTICS AND MANPOWER DEPLOYMENT STUDY PHASE II-MOVING VIOLATION STUDY

THIS STUDY SOUGHT TO UNCOVER RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TRAFFIC VOLUME AND VIOLATION OCCURRENCE AND ACCIDENTS. DATA COLLECTED IN THIS STUDY REVEALED THE FOLLOWING RELATIONSHIPS: (1) NON-SPEEDING RISK VIOLATIONS ARE MODERATELY AND POSITIVELY CORRELATED WITH VOLUME AND ACCIDENTS, (2) SPEEDING VIOLATIONS ARE WEAKLY AND NEGATIVELY CORRELATED WITH VOLUME AND ACCIDENTS, AND (3) THE PERCENTAGE, NON-SPEEDING RISK VIOLATIONS/TOTAL VIOLATIONS, WAS FOUND TO BE STRONGLY INFLUENCED BY THE DEGREE OF INTERDEPENDENCE OF VEHICLE MOVEMENT. IT HAS, THEREFORE, BEEN DEFINED AS A MEASURE OF MULTILANE TRAFFIC FLOW RESTRAINT. THE AUTHORS DEVELOPED EQUATIONS TO PREDICT NON-SPEEDING RISK VIOLATIONS AND SPEEDING VIOLATIONS FOR PASSENGER VEHICLES AND TRUCKS. /BPR/
