AuthorsElsegood ME, Doecke SD, Ponte G

AbstractEvent data recorders (EDRs) are installed in many modern vehicles and, in the event of a crash, record driving data such as travel/impact speed, Delta-V and restraint usage. EDR data was collected from 220 crashed vehicles during 2017 and 2018, and 171 of these were matched to police reports. This data showed that 18% of striking vehicles were speeding and indicated that seatbelt wearing rates in crashes is close to 100%. EDR data provides a more accurate indication of levels of speeding in crashes than available from police reports alone.
