SAMBAND MELLAN FLOEDE, KONCENTRATION OCH OLYCKOR PA STRAECKOR - EN TEORETISK DISKUSSION (ON RELATIONS BETWEEN FLOW, CONCENTRATION AND ACCIDENTS ON ROAD STRETCHES. A THEORETICAL STUDY)

The number of accidents on a road stretch is highly dependent on the volume of traffic. The amount of dangerous traffic situations (e.g. meetings and overtakings) and the distribution between free vehicles and vehicles in queues change as the flow and concentration of the traffic change. Two analytic models of traffic, one isoveloxic and one equilibrium model, are used to study these relations. Using simple models that connects traffic situation with accident types, the expected numbers of meeting and overtaking accidents and single accidents are calculated.
