FIXED ROADSIDE HAZARDS
The seven papers presented at the symposium included an overview paper which noted the serious lack of relevant statistics on this subject. It is necessary to improve the data collection system and to expand the existing research effort. Current spot improvement programmes need to be continued and there is also scope for authorities to rationalize the number of roadside hazards particularly through increased joint-use of facilities. The paper "Current Research in New South Wales" notes that the types of hazard found in studies of the roadside cover a much wider range than is listed in statistical summaries of police records. The other papers presented are: The University of Melbourne Utility Pole Impact Study: A Project Resume Preliminary Report; Roadside Hazards-The Institutional Problem; Motor Vehicles Versus Utility Poles; Economic Evaluation of Safety Improvements To Fixed Roadside Hazards.
