Accidents on rural roads: single carriageway 'A' class roads

01 June 1996

In a reconnaissance study of rural roads (speed limits greater than 40 miles/h) published in 1994, it was found that 'A' class roads were the scene of the majority of accidents in Cambridgeshire. This 1996 report focuses on single carriageway 'A' class roads in Cambridgeshire. Accidents were examined for six roads which had been selected on the basis of their traffic flow. In addition to STATS19 accident data, road environment information was collected, and a driver questionnaire was effected. Statistical models were developed which examined interactions between the three data sources.
