Traffic crashes probability: A socioeconomic and educational approach

While it has been acknowledged in the literature the need to apply comprehensive approaches to identifying specific measures in order to improve road safety, only few reports have found how integrate the socioeconomic and educational characteristics of population into the road safety analysis. This paper assumes the probability of a road user to get involved in traffic crash in order to represent the performance measure of the road safety in a such specific region. The logical analysis of a field survey involving different road users, reveals that specific socioeconomic and educational characteristics influence the probability of a road user to get involved in a traffic crash. The outputs from this research can be helpful to define public policies on road safety for users of each transport mode.
