Modeling the Victorian Road Toll

In 1990, the Victorian.road toll decreased 297. from the previous year to 548 fatalities at a time when the State's economy was (and still is) experiencing one of its worst recessions in history. With more government agencies assuming significant roles in the management of road safety in Victoria and investing greater amounts of resources to foster a safer road environment for its many users, it is timely and pertinent to investigate the impact of the various contributing factors on the road toll. In particular, 'what impact have the economic recession and the various road safety measures, such .as speed cameras, had?' This paper reports the result's of modelling movements in the Victorian road toll for particular road user groups and in total using both linear and Poisson regression models.
