Auther : Hosny I. Hamdy

This article sheds light on drivers’ characteristics and their association with auto accident’s severity in Kuwait. In particular, this study investigates the existence of significant association between the severity of an accident and a set of selected demographical predictors that might characterize drivers according to their anticipated risk; such as age, gender, nationality and place of accident. The analysis was conducted based on a collection of 345 police reports during the period 1994-1995. We extended our analysis to establish a model that quantifies the relationship between the probability of committing a severe or minor accident with a set of significant predictors through the logistic approach. Other interesting results are also included.
