Assessing heavy-vehicle accident rates for marginal cost calculations: Outline of a full probability modelling approach
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

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.
