Veiligheid en doorstroming rond incidenten

This report is the result of research on the relation between incident management (IM) and its effects on traffic flow and safety. The research was conducted in several parts. The first step was to see how an incident influences the safety of other risk groups and the traffic flow on the road. The effect on traffic flow was quantified in capacity reduction factors. When these effects were clarified, it was possible to test the effects of the IM-policy on safety and the traffic flow. After that, some in-depth research was done into the interaction between safety and traffic flow.
