Accident journalism and traffic safety education : a three-phase investigation of accident reporting in the Canadian daily press by Gerald J. S Wilde( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study examined the potential for development of a traffic accident-reporting form in the Canadian daily press that strengthens concern for road safety in the general population and enhances knowledge, attitudes, and behavior leading to greater safety. The investigation was conducted on three levels: a content analysis, a readership analysis, and a field experiment of a modified accident-reporting style. First, 12 daily newspapers in Ontario and Quebec were investigated on the manner in which they reported on traffic accidents. Very small percentages of accidents that actually occurred with little information on causes were found to be reported. Secondly, telephone interviews with 392 holders of valid driver's licenses in Kingston, Ontario, yielded data on motivations and reactions to the reading of traffic accident reports in the daily paper. Thirdly, a prototype of a more educational accident journalism was developed and implemented by the daily newspaper in Kingston; Belleville served as control. After 8 weeks structured telephone interviews with approximately 1200 licensed drivers showed significant changes in people's opinions of accident reporting, in their perceptions of the magnitude of the accident problem and traffic accident risks, and in the attribution of accident causes.

Saguenay wayside horn evaluation project by G. W English( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are potential benefits to the concept of locating an auditory warning system equivalent to a locomotive horn at some grade crossings rather than have the locomotive horn sounded. Having the sound closer and focused at the target location has potential to improve the ratio of warning-detection/community-annoyance in comparison with a locomotive-based horn. Even in the absence of a community noise concern, an auditory device located closer to the target recipient could improve the device's alerting effectiveness. There are no standards or guidelines for wayside horns in Canada. This study assessed the effectiveness of wayside horns at two grade crossings in Saguenay Quebec. The objectives were to assess the location-specific safety effectiveness, noise reduction effectiveness, and reliability of the wayside horn systems installed in Saguenay. The scope of the work involved in-vehicle and on-site sound measurements and field tests of icing and snow ingestion. Safety effectiveness considerations include drivers stopped at grade crossings and drivers approaching grade crossings. Recommendations are included.--Includes text from document

Video-recorded driver behaviour at railway crossings : approach speeds and critical incidents by Gerald J. S Wilde( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Study to add additional information to the existing data base describing critical incidents that occur at level railway crossings under normal operating conditions. The critical incident technique involves the collection and analysis of data on failures, errors, narrow escapes, and near-accidents and are defined as events that bring an accident significantly closer to realization, although no reportable accident actually occurs. Video recordings with voice-over narratives were made by a 2-person observation team at 7 railroad crossings in Ontario during full daylight in summer 1987 in dry weather. All approaching vehicles within about 100 metres of the crossing were recorded, concentrating on the crossing itself immediately after the crossing signals or train whistle were activated. In addition to vehicular flow data, train and signal data were recorded
