Haddon Matrix and Swiss Cheese Model: The Integrated Crash Analysis

Öztürk, İbrahim
The analysis of road traffic accidents is important for determining the reasons behind the accidents and developing appropriate future countermeasures. Many models and theories have been applied for the analyses of road traffic accidents. In the current study, Haddon Matrix and Swiss Cheese Model were integrated into one model and near misses and accidents were evaluated accordingly. Moreover, the new model was used to analyze a case road traffic accident. According to the results of the new model, the accident report mainly focused on the pre-crash and crash level driver and vehicle information without stating interactions between factors. In the literature, it is the first model developing a relational analysis by integrating these two approaches into accident analysis. The new model adds interaction between factors within phases of Haddon Matrix by using Swiss Cheese Model. While investigating future accidents, factors including physical and social environment factors and the interactions between them should be considered by using the new model.

An approach to investigate relationship between speed and safety on urban arterials
Ardiç Eminağa, Zerrin; Akyılmaz, M. Özdemir; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
Traffic safety is an important problem in today’s world with increasing number of fatalities and injuries in traffic accidents. For the solution of this problem, determination of accident prone locations on a network and reasons behind is an essential step, which is studied to some extend via different traffic accident analyses in the literature. While major factors affecting accident risk, such as speed, congestion, infrastructural aspects are known, it is still very difficult to figure out the interaction...
Spatio-temporal accident analysis for accident prevention in relation to behavioral factors in driving: The case of South Anatolian Motorway
Kaygisiz, Omur; Duzgun, Sebnem; Yildiz, Ahmet; ŞENBİL, Metin (2015-08-01)
Analyzing the pattern of traffic accidents on road segments can highlight the hazardous locations where the accidents occur frequently and help to determine problematic parts of the roads. The objective of this paper is to utilize accident hotspots to analyze the effect adifferent measures on the behavioral factors in driving. Every change in the road and its environment affects the choices of the driver and therefore the safety of the road itself. A spatio-temporal analysis of hotspots therefore can highli...
Asymmetric relationship between driving and safety skills
Sumer, NEBİ; Özkan, Türker; LAJUNEN, TIMO JUHANI (2006-07-01)
We hypothesized that the combination of self reported high ratings of driving skills and low ratings of safety skills creates a serious risk for road accident involvement. This study was aimed at investigating the asymmetric interplay between driving and safety skills among Turkish drivers (N= 785) using the Driving Skills Inventory [Lajunen, T., Summala, H., 1995. Driver experience, personality, and skill and safety motive dimensions in drivers' self-assessments. Pers. Indiv. Differ. 19, 307-318]. The assu...
An innovative model integrating spatial and statistical analyses for a comprehensive traffic accident study
Şener, İpek Neşe; İnal, Ayhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
The negative social and economic results of traffic accidents are the most serious problems within the concept of traffic safety. Every year, unfortunately, a huge number of traffic accidents result in destructive losses. Especially, when the holiness of human life is concerned, traffic safety has an invaluable role for the traffic improvement strategies. In this manner, Turkey places one of the highest ranks regarding the growing rate and severity of traffic accidents that should be immediately taken under...
Traffic accident analysis using GIS: a case study of Kyrenia City
Kara, Can; Akcit, Nuhcan (2015-03-19)
Traffic accidents are causing major deaths in urban environments, so analyzing locations of the traffic accidents and their reasons is crucial. In this manner, patterns of accidents and hotspot distribution are analyzed by using geographic information technology. Locations of the traffic accidents in the years 2011, 2012 and 2013 are combined to generate the kernel distribution map of Kyrenia City. This analysis aims to find high dense intersections and segments within the city. Additionally, spatial autoco...
