Abstract

In response to continuing serious injury trauma at intersections, an in-depth investigation was completed of crashes at intersections in Victoria, Australia. Adopting a ?green-fields? approach, a primary goal of the investigation was to determine the fundamental design principles required to create intersection designs that are better aligned with the Safe System philosophy. A key principle identified was the need to limit side impact crash speeds to under 50 km/h, recognising that the biomechanical tolerance of the human body exceeds its threshold when exposed to speeds greater than this. Minimising angles and conflict points were also identified as important principles.
