Deliverable No. 2 – Review of Literature and Experience on the Application of Conflict Studies to Rural Roads. Working report within the project Conflict Study – Application in HA (Highway Agency) Road Safety Management

Research output: Working paper


This report reviews the literature and practical experience with assessing the safety performance of
rural road locations using the traffic conflicts technique. It provides an overview of the development of
conflict studies, which have overwhelmingly been applied at urban locations. It also discusses the current state of the art in the application of automated video analysis for the detection of conflicts.
Recommendations are made on the data collection methods and conflict definitions that should be employed for applying conflict studies at rural locations. Project financed by HRC (Highways Research Group)
