This report includes an analysis of traffic accident data in Kentucky for the years of 1989-1993. A primary objective of this study was to determine average accident statistics for Kentucky highways. Average and critical numbers and rates of accidents were calculated for various types of highways in rural and urban areas. These data can be used in Kentucky's procedure to identify locations that have abnormal rates or numbers of accidents. Another objective of this study was to provide data which can be used in the preparation of the problem identification portion of Kentucky's Annual Highway Safety Plan. County and city accident statistics were analyzed. A summary of results and recommendations in several problem identification areas include alcohol, occupant protection, speed, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, trains, and vehicle defects. Other areas included in the analysis included drugs, school bus accidents, and truck accidents.
