about this item

Based on lectures from the International Course on Transportation Planning and Traffic Safety, organized by the Transportation Research and Injury Programme at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, the 23 chapters in this volume bring together international experience and lessons learned from countries successful in reducing traffic crashes, and their applicability to low-income countries that continue to have high rates of traffic fatalities and injuries. Transportation, engineering, and other specialists from India, Europe, and the US discuss road safety performance in OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation) countries; road traffic injury and public health; land use-transportation planning, mobility, and safety; safety promotion through education and legislation; recording traffic crashes; traffic conflict analysis techniques; statistical considerations in road safety research; speed and its effects on road traffic crashes; the role of biomechanics and ergonomics in injury; safer vehicle design; and risk evaluation and road safety. Others address investigating driving failures and their factors through in-depth accident studies, the use of human body models to understand impact during a crash, highway safety in India, highway construction zone safety audits, road safety in urban areas, urban safety and mobility and traffic calming, public transport and safety, road safety management from the national to the local level, road safety law and policy, and pre-hospital care of the injured.
