  The USDOT's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has identified modern roundabout intersections as one of nine proven life-saving roadway safety strategies. Modern roundabouts are not only safer than traditional signalized and stop-controlled intersections, where appropriate and properly designed, roundabouts operate more efficiently, often The Saskatchewan government is promising to make highway intersections safer following the deadly bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey :// Evaluating safety performance of first-class highways in China is important due to their high mortality rates. Traditional models for statistical crash prediction and traffic conflict techniques require long periods of data collection which is time-consuming and labor-intensive. This paper introduces a safety evaluation method based on catastrophe theory for highways in :// Traffic and environmental conditions (e.g., weather conditions), which frequently change with time, have a significant impact on crash occurrence. Traditional crash frequency models with large temporal scales and aggregated variables are not sufficient to capture the time-varying nature of driving environmental factors, causing significant loss of critical information on crash frequency ://

The MVPLN models were applied to the crash count data of five different severity levels described above: fatal (K), incapacitating-injury (A), non-incapacitating injury (B), minor injury (C), property damage only (PDO or O) collected from the three-legged unsignalized intersections in California described :// This report describes the results of validation and calibration of motor vehicle crash models for rural intersections.

Both the validation and recalibration activities were conducted in pursuit of one overriding research objective, which was to make marginal improvements to an existing set of statistical models for predicting crashes at two and four lane intersections, with the primary intent Many studies focused on the development of crash prediction models have resulted in aggregate crash prediction models to quantify the safety effects of geometric, traffic, and environmental factors on the expected number of total, fatal, injury, and/or property damage crashes at specific ://(ASCE)X()().

VALIDATION OF ACCIDENT MODELS. This chapter presents validation results for the five types of rural intersections. It first provides a description of the overall validation approach. Second, the data sources and issues are discussed.

Third, the individual validation activities and recognizing that different crash types and severity levels have different economic costs. Also developed were models for signalized intersections to explore the feasibility of using such models to evaluate the potential benefits of a proposed signal conversion.

Meeting the objectives placed some special requirements on the data collection Crash reports for all police-reported multiple-vehicle crashes were requested from to for 3SG intersections and from to for 4SG intersections.
