Abstract:   (6026 Views)
Government agencies and the medical, insurance and automotive industries all have an interest in understanding the socio-economic costs of road crashes. These costs are estimated in most countries, and their computation methodology are continuously progressing as more refined costing methods, are used. This paper outlines two recent studies in Iran and Australia in order to compare crash cost estimation approaches. The analytical approaches and the results of similar studies in some other countries are also discussed It is shown that different approaches to estimating human costs and its components have considerable effects on the results. In both studies, the contribution to the total costs are human costs (50 to 60 percent), vehicle costs (30 percent) with the remaining 10 to 20 percent covering general costs.
