ACCIDENT CHARACTERISTICS ON LOW-VOLUME ROADS IN INDONESIA

Road accident statistics from the Indonesian Traffic Police Headquarters for the last decade show that there have been 10,000 fatalities on average per year. This situation has become a serious national issue. Since 1989 the Overseas Unit of Transport Research Laboratory has been involved in a collaborative research study on road safety with the Institute of Road Engineering in Bandung, using the Microcomputer Accident Analysis Package (MAAP). A pilot study to implement the MAAP system was set up in four regions. The characteristics of road accidents on selected low-volume roads are described and processes for identifying contributory factors at hazardous locations are introduced.
