Impact of pavement condition on vehicle operation costs and traffic safety costs
In the structure of the factors that influence on traffic safety, one of the most important is the road characteristics. Therefore, road is one of the most influential factor that can have direct or indirect influence on traffic safety. The impact of the road on road safety is reflected in technical and exploitation indicators. Technical indicators have been largely researched, which is not the case with exploitation parameters. One of the very poorly researched exploitation parameters is the pavement condition. In addition to safety, the condition of the road surface also effects on. Characteristics of the vehicle operation costs the road surface that affect the traffic safety and the vehicle operation costs are: roughness, potholes, transverse cracks, longitudinal cracks... Based on empirical research and the application of statistical methods, the impact of the condition of road surface on traffic safety and exploitation costs will be investigated.
