RP NCTS 1995-01: Serious Road Traffic Accidents in the City of Manila for Traffic Safety Planning

The City of Manila is characterized by a rapid growth of motorization. One implication of this phenomenon is the increase in the number of traffic accidents. There is a need, therefore to examine accidents so that any safety measure can be based on sound, sensible, and most practical analysis. This study identifies several components that contribute to the increasing number of serious accidents in the City of Manila and identified locations where serious accidents are concentrated. and reviewed the existing methodologies on accident analysis. This study tested severity of nighttime against daytime accidents; also the common belief that most of the accidents happen during Mondays. It also examined and tested the hypothesis, that the proportion of accidents involving trucks is higher than any other type of vehicles. Left turning movements inside the intersection was assumed to be the most critical maneuver. Lastly, this study took a closer look at pedestrians who are involved in the most serious traffic accidents.
