This handbook is developed to help road safety professionals diagnose road safety problems by gaining more insights into the mistakes by road users that lead to collision. It describes various road safety methods that can be applied for studying the safety of vulnerable (and other) road users, including: accident data analysis, conflict and behavioural observations, self-reporting and naturalistic studies and road safety audit and inspection. The handbook also focuses on delivering better calculations of the socioeconomic costs of vulnerable road user accidents. The authors discuss when those techniques function best, when they are not entirely suitable, and how they can benefit each other when used in conjunction.
