INTERNATIONAL CALIBRATION STUDY OF TRAFFIC CONFLICT TECHNIQUES. PROCEEDINGS OF NATO ADVANCED RESEARCH WORKSHOP ON INTERNATIONAL CALIBRATION STUDY OF TRAFFIC CONFLICT TECHNIQUES HELD IN COPENHAGEN, MAY 25-27, 1983

To be acknowledged as a tool for measuring safety, it is necessary for traffic conflict techniques to be validated in relation to traditional safety indicators such as injury accidents. Validation has been found to be a difficult task, requiring a lot of effort on data collection and the design of adequate statistical methods, and the results obtained have not been fully decisive. The pooling of efforts in this field appeared necessary for further progress and a first step towards this was the calibration of all existing traffic conflict techniques, i.e. a detailed comparison of definitions, procedures, and type of data collected, in order to be able in the near future to use extended data bases and draw a conceptual framework for validation.
