REVIEW OF METHODS FOR STUDYING PRE-CRASH FACTORS
Considerable effort has been expended particularly over the previous decade in the area of examining pre-crash factors in an attempt at developing appropriate highway safety countermeasures. This report summarizes the review of this field by a select panel of highway safety researchers and includes recommendations for research in accident causation over the next several years. After attempting to clarify the significance of the 'cause' of an accident, the report outlines various approaches to accident causation research and indicates the relevant data needs. The extent and type of exposure information required is addressed.
