ACCIDENT ANALYSIS - BREAKAWAY AND NONBREAKAWAY POLES INCLUDING SIGN AND LIGHT STANDARDS ALONG HIGHWAYS. VOLUME III: APPENDICES

Accident data were collected in this study from seven different geographic locations. The original two study areas that participated beginning January 1976 included: (1) Bexar County (including City of San Antonio), Texas; and (2) Anderson, Bourbon, Clark, Garrard, Fayette, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, Scott, and Woodford Counties (including City of Lexington), Kentucky. In addition, five new study areas were incorporated between November, 1978, and October, 1979 and these included: (3) City of Dallas, Texas; (4) Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties (including City of Los Angeles, California; (5) Washington, D.C.; (6) Salt Lake City, Utah; (7) Alameda, Contra Costa, Maria, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties (including city of San Jose), California. This Appendix contains a brief description of five of these study areas including their characteristics, population, automobile registrations, road mileage, pole counts, and accident counts. Similar information was not provided for Salt Lake City, Utah, and the six-county area of California so no descriptions are given for these study areas in this Appendix.
