Abstract:Objective, detailed and accurate data is critically important in the effort to determine the causes and contributing factors of crashes. In the past, the only way to obtain such information for a large number of crashes was to use data collected from police reports. While information gathered this way is helpful, it has many limitations.

In this study, we conducted the first-ever large-scale examination of naturalistic crash data. Other naturalistic studies have investigated only a small number of crashes or used near crashes as a proxy for real crashes. In contrast, this project examined hundreds of actual crashes from a naturalistic driving database. The data allowed us to examine behaviors and potential contributing factors in the seconds leading up to the collision, and provided information not available in police reports.
