HIGHWAY SAFETY PROGRAMS EFFECTIVENESS MODEL

The purpose of this project was to construct a model capable of functionally relating highway safety (DOT/NHTSA) program outputs to (intermediate) risk factors and then to accidents, injuries and fatalities. The model inputs and outputs were obtained from a conceptual Causal Network which displayed the factors believed to influence the occurrence of an accident and their postulated interdependencies in leading to an accident. Also depicted in the network were the outputs of the highway safety activities as they were believed to interact with the intervening factors.
