User initiated research into traffic accident frequency at signalised intersections

Traffic accidents are a primary interest for traffic engineers and others involved in road safety and community health. However, road safety practitioners often have a limited view of sites and tend to rely on traditional investigation techniques and countermeasures. The roles of different participants provide the interaction between need, research and practice which should be improved to develop more appropriate analytical techniques. Some principles of ensuring that research is applicable to users are discussed. These are illustrated by an example of research into accidents at traffic signals supported by the Main Roads Department in Western Australia and applications which result.
