TRAFFIC SAFETY TRENDS AND FORECASTS
This document, which is designed for use by planners and managers in making program direction and resource allocation decisions, examines the likely range of motor vehicle related fatalities through 1990. The study also examines the manner in which these changes will occur. In developing the forecast of motor vehicle fatalities in 1990, five factors were considered: population, drivers, vehicles, travel, economic activity. A simple extrapolation of the 1974-1982 rates for these factors were examined as a preliminary step. This was followed by a disaggregate analysis. The forecast values are based on the analysis of the disaggregate analysis.
