An Evaluation of the Effectiveness and Cost-Effectiveness of A Rural Run-Off-Road Crash program in Western Australia
Keywords: Risk Evaluation and Treatment
Single vehicle run-off-road crashes accounted for almost 60% of all road deaths and serious injuries in regional and remote Western Australia (WA) from 2008 to 2012. A total of 984 kilometres of rural WA roads received road treatments under the rural “Run-off-road Crash Program” from 2012 to 2015. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the WA program in reducing the frequency and severity of run-off-road crashes, as well as the program’s cost-effectiveness in terms of savings to the community for each dollar invested.
