Abstract

Safety analysis focuses on how traffic safety can change while mobility analysis is used to determine how people change travel behavior. The integration of mobility, safety and behavioral data related to COVID-19 can provide valuable insights to decision makers. Wide availability of mobile sensors has given us the opportunity to be able to assess changes in the performance and mobility of transport systems in, almost real time. The researchers also measured the impact of COVID-19 on human mobility using public mobile location data available from many companies such as Google and Apple, which is very useful for changing human mobility. The platforms produce aggregated metrics of daily mobility, including the purpose of travel, the mode of travel, and imputations of social demographics. Based on a comprehensive data set of people who participated in the collected accident data and mobile device data, we record the impact of COVID-19 on traffic safety. The paper systematically and statistically approaches the assessment of road safety in Croatia during the COVID-19 pandemic.
