Project Details

OBJECTIVE

1. To study the epidemiology of road traffic injury (fatal) pattern in six cities of India differentitated by population size and high and low rate of fatalities per unit population.

2. To understand the modal share of victims and vehicles involved in crashes and to estimate risk functions associated with different road users.

3. To obtain a preliminary understanding of road design from an engineering perspective, design of the built environment from a land use perspective, and community design in a broader sense for control of road traffic fatalities in urban areas.

4. To suggest areas of detailed research for future studies.
