The influence of weather conditions on road safety
The impact of meteorological and weather conditions on road safety, which indicate that during bad weather conditions leads to reduced friction between tire and road surface that reduces visibility and is difficult to steer have been examined for many years around the world. High precipitation affects the decrease in mobility and significantly increase the incidence of traffic accidents. In contrast high-temperature of the lead to the development of intense tiredness and an increase in traffic accidents with serious consequences. Namely, influence factors acting on the car and the traffic - mechanically (for example wind, rain, snow, ice), affect the visibility (fog, mist, darkness), and act via a psycho-physiological functions of the driver (for example, air pressure, temperature and humidity). The aim of this study was to use the method of expertise statistics of traffic accidents and to determine whether and to what extent the weather conditions affect the occurrence of traffic accidents, as well as the correlation between some elements which influence.
