Abstract

This study deals with the traffic accident of truck at circular intersection. The purpose of this study is to develop the truck accident models based on type of accident and conflict. In pursuing the above, the study gives particular attentions to selecting the appropriate models among Poisson and Negative binomial models using statistical program LIMDEP 8.0. The traffic accident data from 2007 to 2014 are collected from TAAS data set of Road Traffic Authority. Such the dependent variable as number of truck accidents and the 24 independent variables as geometry, traffic volume and others are used. The main results are as follows. First, 5 Poisson models (${\rho}^2$ of 0.164~0.351) which are all statistically significant are selected. Second, the common variable based on type of accident and conflict is analyzed to be truck apron width. The specific variables are, however, evaluated to splitter island, area of splitter island, speed limit sign, truck apron, number approach road, circular intersection sign, speed hump and traffic volume. Finally, widening the truck apron width and improving the above specific variables are analyzed to be important for truck accident reduction at circular intersections.
