We have the need for speed...data
In the event of a collision, greater vehicular speeds result in greater harm.
For this reason, the planning of roads, and particularly infrastructure of intersections (major conflict sites), requires careful consideration. The investigation of real-world speed data is to improve understanding of how natural driver behaviour relates to intersection design, as well as risk of fatal and serious injury (FSI).
Comparison of the new findings from this study with existing literature and FSI risk profiles will offer further insight for road planners and designers for how to minimise FSI occurrence. The research conducted aims to assist the design of future Australian roads, with the vision of a complete reduction of FSI occurrence.
