RE: [NewMobilityCafe] Transport fatalities
- Dear Eric & colleagues,The fatalities chart from Prof Dinesh Mohan is intriguing. I started to deconstruct it (see EXCEL attached) but have run out of time. However the first two lowest categories of deaths per million show no immediate common causes between countries so I have listed some of the factors (below) which need to be taken into consideration. Send me three month's research funds - and I'll tackle the job and make a report.Noel
Reasons to consider
Slow Vehicles - e.g. Donkey carts etc
Demographic - age groups travelling
Mobility - Population travelling on any-one-day
Peak Hours - School and commuter traffic congestion
Laws - speed limits etc
Culture & Education - Care about "society". Children warned etc.
Attitude to Risk - e.g US gun deaths, Macho culture etc
Health - general fitness of travelling public (likely to die in transit)
Health Care and Accident Care - emergency services saving lives
Road, Rail, Air etc Infrastructure - investment into safety
Who drives - male and female drivers ratio.
