PROBABILITY APPROACH FOR RANKING HIGH-ACCIDENT LOCATIONS

Several methods for ranking high accident locations have been considered. Although the budget constraints is the primary factor affecting the number of locations to be considered in future improvement programs, some techniques based on either accident frequency and/or accident rate are typically used. This paper presents a statistical technique employing the theoretical relationship concept of Poisson and binomial distribution.
