About the research

These projects investigated four different potential methods for analyzing the SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study by using data from similar field studies to examine road departure and intersection safety issues. In particular, the four projects examined the statistical relationship between surrogate measures of collisions (conflicts, critical incidents, near collisions, or roadside encroachment) and actual collisions.

Four reports are available through the links on this page.
