The 4th Pan-Hellenic Road Safety Conference was organised by the Hellenic Institute of Transportation Engineers and the National Technical University of Athens.
Characteristics of lorry and bus accidents in Greece
Application of the SUNflower methodology for the assessment of two-wheeler safety in Greece
Correlations of road accident and meteorological conditions time-series
A Diploma Thesis titled ‘Macroscopic correlation of weather conditions and accident risk and severity in the interurban road network of Greece’ was presented by Theodore Nikolopoulos in July 2004. The use of lognormal regression has been adopted and applied on the disaggregate road accident data for the period of 1992 – 1999 on the Patra – Athens – Thessaloniki – Evzoni road axis. The results suggested that low temperature leads to reduction in the number of accidents and the severity of accidents whilst it increases the risk for the 2-wheel vehicles.
