  4. 4. *The Extent of Crashes Involving Poles<br /> <br />A study by Pilkington in 1988, found that 14.4 percent of roadside crashes in the US involved traffic light poles and street light poles.<br />It was added that this number would serve as an underestimate of the true extent of such crashes due to a sizeable percentage of pole accidents not being reported. <br />This equates to a rate of 0.12 pole crashes per mile of roadway per year. It was found that rural and urban pole crash rates were the same, with these crashes involving 34 per 100 million vehicles passing in both settings. Pole crashes were 6 times more likely than other crashes to lead to a fatality and 3 times more likely to sustain fatal injuries. 80 percent were frontal impacts and the remaining 20 percent were side impacts, with the latter more commonly producing a fatality.<br /> <br />Jones and Baum also conducted a study into pole crashes in the US, focusing on urban settings. Police reports nationwide for 1975 included 8000 pole crashes. Poles were the most frequently struck roadside object (21.1%), comprising 2.2% of all crashes. These crashes, more importantly, featured the highest injury rate (50.5%) for all crashes, excepting rollovers (52.6%).<br /> <br />Another study was conducted by Mak and Mason (1981), looking at both urban and rural crashes. Poles were among the most frequently struck roadside objects, accounting for 28.4% of roadside crashes and 3.3% of all crashes. These authors also reported a high rate of injuries and fatalities for pole crashes with 1.2% causing a fatality (6.2 times more likely than the average crash) and 43.4% causing injuries (3 times more likely)<br /> <br />*From an international report to the Motor Accident Commission from the University of Adelaide Austarlia May 1999.<br />
