GEOMETRIC TREATMENTS FOR REDUCING PASSING ACCIDENTS AT RURAL INTERSECTIONS ON TWO-LANE HIGHWAYS. VOLUME 2. DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPUTERIZED DATA BASE
The purpose of this research study was to identify passing accident problems at rural intersections, and to develop cost-effective geometric design treatments to reduce the number and severity of these accidents. Accident, geometric, traffic control, and volume data were collected and encoded on computer tape for 1,028 rural intersections located in 32 townships in Michigan. This volume describes the development of the data base; defines the data variables and the coding format; provides an overview of the programs written to process the data for analyses using SPSS, SAS, or OSIRIS IV; outlines the limitations of the data; and provides examples illustrating the use of the data base to identify safety problems at rural intersections. This report is the second in the series. second in the series.
