MANUAL ACCIDENT TYPING FOR BICYCLIST ACCIDENTS. CODER'S HANDBOOK

This Coder's Handbook is part of a package of materials developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to enable states and communities to classify (i.e., "type") their bicyclist/motor vehicle accidents. By determining the frequency of occurrence of the various bicyclist accident types, safety planners can select the NHTSA accident countermeasures which are of greatest value to the communities. This classification approach is called Manual Accident Typing or MAT. The MAT approach involves reviewing the information contained in a police accident report and following a systematic step-by-step procedure to identify the correct accident type for the report.
