Traffic safety on links in urban areas. Results based on traffic network analysis according to "The quiet street" (English)
Abstract [sv]

This investigation is part of the project Effect models for road traffic

installations (EMV) which is financed by the Swedish Road Administration. The

aim has been to explain and predict, with models and empirically, the risk

levels of groups of road users on street links. Risk levels refer to being

injured or killed in a traffic accident. The data obtained by local

authorities in the traffic network analyses performed according to the

procedure described in the planning handbook "The quiet street" have been

used as the basis. Among other things, the results highlight the strong

relationship that exists between death rate and injury rate and the speeds of

motor vehicles. The empirical results are in good agreement with the

relationship between the probability of fatal injury and collision speed

according to the probability of pedestrian injury - impact speed curve. The

results of the investigation are interesting and capable of development, and

there are therefore strong reasons to do further work on a more refined model

that explains and predicts the risk levels in the street system in urban

areas in a more flexible manner.
