Collisions with utility poles: summary report

This report summarises the objectives, methodology, findings and recommendations of a study of collisions with utility poles. In a survey of accidents, information on site characteristics and accident severity was obtained. Randomly selected samples of sites and vehicles provided control information. An accident predictor model which identifies accident risk on the basis of site measurements has been derived. The model was used in conjunction with estimates of the costs of accidents to show that a number of remedial treatments are warranted.
