Incidence of Pedestrian and Bicyclist Crashes by Hybrid Electric Passenger Vehicles: Technical Report
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 20 pages
Examines the incidence rates of pedestrian and bicyclist crashes that involved hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and compares the results to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles under similar circumstances. State crash files from the Nat. Highway Traffic Safety Admin.¿s State Data System were used to measure the incidence rates of pedestrian and bicyclist crashes by HEVs and to compare the incidence rate with their peer ICE vehicles. This study found that pedestrian and bicyclist crashes involving both HEVs and ICE vehicles commonly occurred on roadways, in zones with low speed limits, during daytime and in clear weather, with higher incidence rates for HEVs when compared to ICE vehicles. Charts and tables.
