Abstract

In order to reduce traffic accidents, it is important to know where traffic accidents occur and how people perceive hazard that is related to traffic. In this study an attempt was made to examine the relationship between actual traffic accident location and people's perception of hazardous location using geographic information system. An extensive questionnaire survey was conducted with regard to the perceived location of traffic hazard. Three types of accident-hazard relationship were identified. Finally potential application of hazard map is discussed.
