Contributor Püschel, K. (editor) Dittmann, V. (editor) Schubert, W. (editor) Publication year 2013 Abstract TNO conducted long-term video observations to collect data on the pre-crash phase of real accidents (what exactly happened just before the collision?). The video recordings of collisions were used to evaluate and validate the safety value of in-depth accident analyses, road scene analyses, and behavioural observations (including traffic conflicts). In total, sixteen collisions could be identified from video. The conflicts that were scored clearly illustrated typical safety problems and resulted in several observations about the typical lay-out and functioning of the intersection at hand. In general, traffic conflicts and deviant behaviour, together with road scene analyses give a good insight in potential safety problems at specific intersections from a road users' perspective. The collected collisions helped a lot to get a better insight in accident causation processes and to value the results of conflict observations and road scene analyses. With respect to the collisions, remarkably, in most cases, another road user was (in)directly involved, either as a distracting or as a contributing element.
