Abstract

This study investigated the degree to which a State Highway Patrol unit would report valid TAD vehicle damage ratings. It also explored the relationship between the TAD severity ratings and degree of driver injury. This relationship was compared to the relationships between injury and other acts of variables. Of the Highway Patrol accident reports involving passenger cars, 93% at an acceptable TAD rating. These ratings correlated .45 with the degree of driver injuries -- higher than any other accident detail routinely collected. The degree of multiple correlation between a selected number of variables with and without TAD was also compared. The degree of multiple correlation without TAD was .10. This increased to .26 when TAD was added to the variable set. It was concluded that the TAD scale is a useful estimate of crash severity and could serve as a control variable in future research.
