Assessing heavy-vehicle accident rates for marginal cost calculations: Outline of a full probability modelling approach
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
The problem of determining marginal costs associated to heavy vehicles'
involvement in traffic accidents can be factored into two sub-problems: one
of determining the rate with which various trucks are involved in accidents
and one of evaluating the with an accident associated consequences. We focus
here entirely on the first aspect, and suggest a full probability modelling
approach in order to estimate the accident rates of various types of trucks.
This approach allows us to jointly account for information obtained from the
Swedish police-reported accident register, the Swedish vehicle register, the
register of the annually roadworthiness inspection, and the sample survey
'Transports by Swedish Trucks in Sweden'. This survey contains important
information about the exposure of various types of vehicles.
