Statistics in Road Safety



A one day course to introduce delegates to some simple statistical techniques that can be used to assist in defining road safety problems.  This course is suitable for anyone working in collision investigation, traffic management, or road safety who wants to gain an understanding of analytical techniques, or revise their statistical knowledge and experience.

Aims and Objectives:

The aim of this course is to give delegates confidence in the use of statistical techniques, as part of their role in investigating road safety problems. The course looks at statistics from a practical, rather than from a theoretical point of view, and delegates will have the opportunity to work through a series of scenarios from first principles, using appropriate statistics to help them determine whether risk has changed, or whether risk is different from expected levels.

Delegates will be provided with software at the end of the course that can be used in future analysis work.

Topics Covered:

  • How to calculate collision rates
  • Probability and risk
  • Collision trends and the poisson test
  • Control data
  • Comparative testing and the chi squared test
  • Before and after testing
  • Confidence limits
  • Simple linear regression
  • Use of simple stats program                


Delegates completing this course will receive a CPD certificate of attendance, recognised by both the IHE and CIHT
