STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF 102-INCH WIDE INTERCITY BUS ACCIDENT DATA, 1972

The study evaluates the Historical accident record of 102-inch wide intercity buses employed by interstate carriers. The accident record is compared to the accident record of standard 96-inch buses operated in comparable environments. A major product is the establishment and comparison of mean accident rates on a bus mile basis for each type of bus. In addition, each of the accidents involving 102-inch buses is examined for evidence of causes that are of high interest such as aerodynamic effect, increased width, lateral stability, etc. Accident reports are analyzed for differences in severity, configuration, distribution of injuries and other characteristics by type of bus.
