INTERSECTION CASUALTY ACCIDENTS: TRENDS, CHARACTERISTICS, PERSONS INVOLVED, AND CONSEQUENCES, BRITISH COLUMBIA, 1985
Traffic accidents where one road crosses another make up almost half of the traffic accidents that produce injury or death in B.C. In urban areas intersection casualty accidents comprise over half of all casualty accidents. In order to devise countermeasures aimed at reducing these accidents, it is necessary to know the characteristics of the accidents and of the drivers involved. This paper examines intersection casualty accidents in B.C. for their trends and patterns, time and conditions, vehicles involved, pre-collision and collision events, post-collision events and contributing factors, drivers and passengers, victims, and charges laid.
