Abstract

This paper presents a comprehensive model of injury severity that accounts for unmeasured driver behavior attributes. The results of the model have important implications for the design of safety interventions and advanced vehicular features and technologies. Engineering designs that accommodate the diminished capabilities of older drivers, that include rear-seat safety features, and that alert drivers to potential frontal collisions before they occur (collision warning systems and automated braking systems) would contribute to substantial reductions in injury severity for occupants of vehicles.
