Resolving some methodological issues in Road Safety Evaluations: The Victorian TAC campaigns revisited
Tay, Richard S. (2003) Resolving some methodological issues in Road Safety Evaluations: The Victorian TAC campaigns revisited. In 2003 Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference, 24 - 26 September, 2003, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour.
Since their implementation, the TAC campaigns have been extensively evaluated and the mixed results obtained by different researchers have generated much public debate. The true effects of most countermeasures are unknown and may never be known. In estimating their impacts on road safety, analysts have to make a variety of assumptions regarding the relationships between variables and depending on their beliefs, the outcomes may differ considerably. The purpose of this paper is to review conceptually some of the differing assumptions adopted by the different researchers and empirically testing several of these assumptions and model specifications using the same data from previous studies (Cameron et al, 1993; Newstead et al, 1995; White et al, 2000), with the aim to improve our conceptual and methodological understanding of road safety evaluations
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
