How safe are the cars on our roads? Data visualisations to analyse NSW light vehicle fleet safety at a glance
The NSW Centre for Road Safety (CRS) has developed two vehicle fleet safety visualisation tools to provide insights into the safety of the light vehicle fleet and its relationship to road trauma. The visualisations present a snapshot of the safety specifications of a subset of NSW registered light vehicles, and their involvement rates in crashes. To our knowledge, this is the first application of visualisation tools to match vehicle safety specifications data with crash data. The visualisations assist CRS policy-makers in research and policy analyses by allowing users to filter data and present queries in simple graphical displays.
