TitleSpeeding insights from the CASR EDR study
AuthorsElsegood ME, Doecke SD, Ponte G
Year2021
TypeUnknown
AbstractTravel speed data retrieved from vehicles with event data recorders (EDR) were matched to police reports and hospital records, allowing insight into driver behaviours. Details of 316 cases were collected and categorised into crash types and movement groups. Vehicles travelling at a self selected, free speed immediately preceding the crash were shown to be speeding in 36.1% of cases. Males were shown to have a slightly higher proportion of speeding from the sample, but speeding was shown to be statistically significantly more prevalent with drivers aged below 40 years old.
