Abstract

A study was carried out to identify the locations of accidents and risky driving situations. Traffic control in work zones (WZ) was analyzed basing on statewide opinion survey of 930 semitrailer drivers. The survey contained questions about driver/vehicle characteristics, assessment of WZ traffic control devices, accident and difficult driving situations, and suggestions for improving traffic flow and safety in WZ. Travel characteristics of truck drivers and their relationship to accident experience of the drivers are discussed.
