Abstract

n most of the metropolitan cities in India, the road use patterns are very different from those in developed countries. Globalization had brought in significant changes in lifestyles and occupation. Migration from rural to urban in search of better livelihood, increasing population, urbanization and modern infrastructures have made man more and more dependent on motorized vehicles. This resulted in the increase in economic activities and there has tremendous growth of motor vehicles which is considered as one of the primary factors responsible for increasing road accidents in many metropolitan cities of developing countries, including Hyderabad, India. In our country nearly 4.7 lakhs of lives are met with road accidents in the year 2008; a significant share of it is from the major cities. In this paper an assessment of the current level of road safety in Cyberabad city is done by utilizing the data obtained from secondary sources. Using severity data for Cyberabad City, a mixed logit model is estimated. Estimation findings indicate that volume-related variables —while roadway characteristics such as the number of horizontal curves, number of grade breaks per km, type of vehicle and condition of the driver are best modelled for severity as fixed parameters. It was observed that head on severity and swipe is significant for non fatal accidents. Our results show that mixed logit model has considerable promise as a methodological tool in accident analysis.
