THE MOBILE IN-DEPTH ACCIDENT SURVEY IN VICTORIA (AUSTRALIA). ROAD ACCIDENT INFORMATION SEMINAR PROCEEDINGS

The multidisciplinary, in-depth study of injury-producing and fatal crashes involving pedestrians and/or car occupants in Victoria, Australia is described. The goal of the Road Accident Research Unit is to find practical countermeasures to reduce the number of serious and fatal crashes and their severity. The accident investigation teams comprise a medical researcher, an engineer, and a sociologist. The sampling procedure for crash selection and the data sought (primary, secondary, tertiary) are outlined. The technique of investigation is discussed separately for injury and for fatal crashes. Resources (personnel, equipment, finance) are listed. Integration of the data collected, problems to be solved, presentation of results, and a study timetable are indicated.
