ANALYTICAL APPROACH TO THE IDENTIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS ROAD LOCATIONS: A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE

Traffic accidents happen in certain locations and for the past 20 years, engineers and researchers have been trying to understand, systemize and correct hazardous road locations. After a comprehensive study of the existing literature, 30 papers were chosen for an in-depth investigation using meta-analysis. A cross-sectional review of the papers established a comprehensive grid of the main points, filled the grid by scrutinizing the information in each paper, and reported section-by-section the different points on a meta-plan. The grid included objectives of the study, terminology and definitions used, population or scale of the study, data and their availability, methods and techniques including criteria used for identifying risk locations, problems and biases, and utilization and range. To analyze definitions and terminology, textual analysis was used. A discussion and illustration of different methodologies and practical issues is presented.
