ANALYSIS OF MOTORWAY ACCIDENTS

ZUR ANALYSE VON AUTOBAHN-UNFAELLEN

In this report it is shown that motorways are at present the safest type of highway, but that the severity of accidents on motorways is greater than in the case of other types of highway. 823 accidents on Austrian motorways were studied. It was shown that the driver involved in accidents displays characteristic features, particularly lack of driving practice, that native drivers are over-represented in percentages in the number of accidents involving personal injury and that middle class drivers at 57% are more often involved in accidents than people in lower social classes.
