Climate Change and Road Safety
Using police reports of road collisions that occurred from 2000-2009, quantitative estimates of collision risk during different weather conditions are provided. These risk estimates are combined with projections of climate change to provide insights into the magnitude and nature of the safety risks associated with climate change in the future.
This publication represents the most comprehensive assessment of its kind to date.
