TRI-LEVEL STUDY OF THE CAUSES OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS: INTERIM REPORT 1. VOLUME 1. RESEARCH FINDINGS AND VOLUME 2. APPENDICES

This is the final report of the first year of activity under a proposed three-year program. The report covers the period August 15, 1972 to August 14, 1973. Data were collected on three levels of detail. Police reports and other baseline data on the Monroe County, Indiana study area were collected on Level A. On Level B, teams of technicians responded to accidents at the time of their occurrence to conduct on-scene investigations. On Level C, a sample of 22 percent of these accidents were independently examined by a multidisciplinary team. A general population survey was also conducted. The report is presented in nine major sections: Introduction; Methodology Overview; Findings Regarding Accident Causes; Accident and Control Sample comparisons; Cluster Analysis; Problem Driver Identification; Analysis of Study Sample Representativeness; Conclusions; and Recommendations (Volume I). Principal data collection forms are included in Appendices B and C (Volume II).
