Abstract

With over 60,000 motor vehicle collisions in Alberta's Capital Region every year, the Capital Region Intersection Safety Partnership (CRISP) identified a need to understand the costs of collisions in an attempt to get people (drivers, municipalities, stakeholders, government, etc.) to take real action to reduce collisions. The purpose of the Collision Cost Study was to recommend a collision costing model to CRISP that would be most appropriate for the Capital Region. The report examines and evaluates the elements associated with the cost of motor vehicle collisions, and quantifies the costs associated with the specific components of collision cost. The primary focus of the study examined direct costs associated with collisions, but also touched on in-direct collision costs. This paper provides and overview of the study and presents the results of the collision costs for the Capital Region.
