Prediction software for Traffic Accidents prediction
Significant efforts have been devoted to creating accident prediction models which can explain relationship between road characteristics and traffic accidents. Accident prediction models, also known as safety performance functions, provide direct method for analyzing how are safety performance functions related to different features and characteristics of the road, while on the other hand they allow conducting of economic evaluation and ranking countermeasures according to economic benefits or savings. Purpose of this paper was to point out the importance of accident prediction models and their application in improving road safety. To this day Republic of Serbia doesn’t have its own accident prediction model, foreign empirical models are in use so the aim of this paper is to point out benefits and the importance of developing and using accident prediction models as a state of the art tool for improving road safety.
