RECREATIONAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION STUDY

This is an interim report on the progress of the "Recreational Vehicle Accident Investigation Study". This study is being performed by the University of Kentucky Multidisciplinary Accident Study Team (UKMAST) of the Department of Civil Engineering, College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky. This reporting period covers July 1, 1973 to June 30, 1974 although certain levels of investigation cover shorter periods of time, ending June 30, 1974. The scope of the overall study includes three primary levels of effort. Level I covers baseline data on drivers, vehicles and highways in the study area, the motor vehicle accident experience and recreational facilities in the study area, and the exposure and accident rates of recreational vehicles in the study area as compared to national baseline data. Level II consists of bi-level investigations by police/engineering personnel on a large sample of recreational vehicle accidents and Level III, in-depth investigation of fifty recreational vehicle accidents by a multidisciplinary team. The findings reported herein reflect the interim trends emerging from these data and should not be considered conclusive. /DOT/
