The Impact of Road Network Structure and Mobility on the National Traffic Fatality Rate

This paper describes the effects of selected measures of road network structure and mobility on the traffic fatality rate based on data from a number of countries worldwide. Multiple factor non-linear models have been developed which help identify the effects of a number of important factors including the economy, systems, motorization and infrastructure on road safety measured with the road fatality rate (RFR). They are the mobility of the population measured with vehicle kilometres travelled (VKTPC), total density of the road network related to demography (DDR), proportion of paved roads (PPR) and proportion of motorways and express roads within the road network (PME).
