Confounding Factors of Commercial Motor Vehicles in Safety Critical Events

The proposed study will seek to uncover existing relationships between observed hours of service (HOS) on likelihood of safety critical events (SCE) and a set of potential confounding factors related to Time-of-Day (TOD). This will be accomplished through (1) a comprehensive existing state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice as it relates to commercial motor vehicle (CMV) parking behavior and choice and heterogeneity based methods, (2) perform commercial motor vehicle operator and shipper surveys, (3) conduct statistical analyses and mine current data collected from a stated preference survey, and Oregon and Washington crash data to determine potential factors, (4) conduct factor analyses and estimate and validate heterogeneity based models using the 2/3rd of data prepared and identified in (2) and (3) using advanced econometric software. Once the models have been estimated the stability of the coefficient estimates of the models will be validated using 1/3rd of set aside data. It’s envisaged that two journal manuscripts will result from this work, and (5) prepare a final report.
