PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY PLAN
To comply with Section 402, Title 23 of the United States Code, each state is required to prepare a annual highway safety program. Kentucky's program, which includes identification, programming, budgeting, and evaluation of highway safety projects, is intended to have a positive impact on the reduction of traffic accidents. The first step in the program, problem identification, requires systematic, statistical analyses of accident records. In-depth analyses of accident data were performed, and 25 problem areas were investigated. Accident rates were found for counties and cities in the following categories: total accidents, fatal accidents, accidents by driver age and sex, and speed-, alcohol-, and drug-related accidents. In addition, rates were reported for accidents involving pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, school buses, tractor-trailers, single-unit trucks, railroad trains, and emergency vehicles.
