CR 01: Collisions with utility poles

In a survey of utility pole collisions, information on site characteristics and accident severity was obtained. Randomly-selected samples of sites and vehicles provided control information. An accident-predictor model which identifies accident risk on the basis of site measurements is derived. The model is used in conjunction with estimates of the costs of accidents to show that a number of remedial treatments are warranted.
