  • 1. How to investigate a blackspotSurabaya30th & 31th May 2012 Phillip Jordan, Consultant Road Safety International Pty Ltd
  • 2. How to investigate a blackspotAims of this presentation:  to outline the blackspot investigation process  to encourage you to look for low cost, high benefit countermeasures  to show you some recent Indonesian blackspot investigations  to outline some of the lessons learnt
  • 3. On Indonesian highways and roads:• Many crashes – mainly motorcycles, pedestrians• Road safety is a growing community concern.• Crash data – getting better and more accurate.• Few “champions” of road safety engineering – yet!• There is much to do to improve road safety.• We (engineers) should start by treating blackspots.• But limited experience with blackspot treatments.
  • 4. What is a Blackspot ? A blackspot is a location on a road which has a high number of crashes – fatal, serious or minor. It may be an intersection or it may be a length of road. In Victoria (Australia) – it is 3 casualty crashes in 5 years. In 1980 when the Victorian blackspot program started – it was 12 casualty crashes in 3 years. There has been great success over 30 years.
  • 5. What is a Blackspot ?For Indonesia we give:• 10 points for each fatal crash• 5 points for each serious casualty crash• 1 point for all other crashes• Any site with more than 15 points = blackspot• Any 1km length with more than 30 points/km = black length• This is the starting point as we sift through candidate sites.
  • 6. Crash occursThe sequence of actions in the whole blackspot process
  • 7. Police reportCrash occurs

  • 15. Part D Road safety engineering processesBlackspot investigations – 6 examples given
  • 16. Steps in the blackspot process
  • 17. To treat a blackspot: 11 Establish a list of blackspots – Search Police crash data for high crash frequency sites. – Seek one kilometre lengths with high numbers of crashes. – Talk with the Police, use local knowledge. Identify those intersections and lengths within each kilometre where it is known there have been many crashes. – Gather all the Police reports for the site – read them.
  • 18. Police can assist with blackspot identification Road safety engineering issues for Indonesia
  • 19. Police can assist with blackspot identification Road safety engineering issues for Indonesia
  • 20. Police can assist with blackspot identification Road safety engineering issues for Indonesia
  • 21. To treat a blackspot: 22 Obtain and read all Police crash report forms. – Gain a “picture” of the crash history of the site. – Work with Police – ask them for details of the crashes that may not be in the reports.
  • 22. To treat a blackspot: 2a2aDraw a collision diagram. – Easy to do – but messy, so do a rough draft first – For each vehicle – draw an arrow to show its direction – Show m/c, pedestrians, cars, trucks, buses differently – Make sure that the point of impact is accurately shown
  • 23. Draw Collision Diagram & Crash Factor Grid
  • 24. Draw Collision Diagram & Crash Factor Grid
  • 25. Draw Collision Diagram & Crash Factor Grid
  • 26. To treat a blackspot: 2b2b Draw a crash factor grid (Matrix) – Easy to do – use Microsoft Excel if you have it. – Paper will also do. – For each crash – summarise all the known details in one column. – Add rows if extra information is known from the Police reports.

  • 30. Draw Collision Diagram & Crash Factor Grid
  • 31. To treat a blackspot: 33 Diagnose the problem Look at the Collision Diagram and the Crash Factor Matrix – are there any patterns? Day time vs night time? Wet vs dry? Type of crash - head on, or run-off-road etc Type of road user? Direction of travel?
  • 32. To treat a blackspot: 44 Inspect the site – at the time that the patterns of crashes have happened! If night time – inspect at night!! Put yourself in the shoes of the people who had the crashes. Ask - Why did they have their crash?
  • 33. To treat a blackspot: 44 Be logical ...... Only use countermeasures that will reduce the crashes (For example, if crashes happened mainly during daytime, do not install street lighting as a countermeasure). $$ are always limited – so look first for low cost options. (Don’t use a bomb to kill a mouse).
  • 34. •Inspect site – day and night.•Assess likely causes.•You are like a doctor at thisstage – diagnosing your patientto prescribe the best medicine!
  • 35. • If a patient visits a doctor, the doctor asks about his illness.• The doctor does not just guess about his illness – he does not want totreat the patient for a headache when he has a heart problem.• You are like a doctor at this stage – diagnosing your blackspot!• The blackspot cannot speak – you have to look, listen and ask locals.• This takes time, skill, patience and logic

  • 37. Police can assist with blackspot information
  • 38. Police can assist with blackspot information Police can assist with blackspot information
  • 39. Tips for the site inspection• Visual deceit – Not all drivers/riders see the road the same way. – You need to try to look at the road as others “might”
  • 40. The driver’s view is straight ahead - but the road goes left!!Visual deceit USA - RHS
  • 41. The driver’s view is straight ahead - but the road goes left!! CRASHVisual deceit LHS
  • 42. Pantura – East Java.How/ why has this barrier been damaged?Why would anyone run off the road here?
  • 43. Think of this highway at night!Visual deceit
  • 44. To treat a blackspot: 55 Develop countermeasures – talk with colleagues, with DGLT, with Police Keep simple, keep low cost Persevere – there will be many locations where suitable countermeasures will be possible.
  • 45. Your list of low cost countermeasuresSigns – warning, regulatory, directionLine markingDelineationShoulder sealingRoadside hazard removalGeometric changesSpeed limitsTraffic signalsRoundaboutsLighting
  • 46. To treat a blackspot: 66 Design, and then cost the work - Finalise the design - Work out the cost of the proposal
  • 47. To treat a blackspot: 7&87 Write your blackspot report8 Send for approval for funding; put this site into the Works Program Ensure to implement the agreed countermeasures(s). It is no use for the road users unless we make positive changes to the location.
  • 48. Steps in the blackspot process
  • 49. Into the future – maybe 3 or 4 years – there will be competition for funding within the blackspot program. Then you will have to rank sites so that funds are spent on those sites that will return the “best value” to the people of Indonesia
  • 50. How will we determine cost and benefits?1 We need to know the benefits to be gained $2 We need to know the cost of the countermeasures $3 Then we calculate the benefit/ cost ratio
  • 51. How will we determine cost and benefits?1 We need to know the benefits to be gained $ How many crashes do we expect to save, and how much does each one cost?
  • 52. How will we determine cost and benefits?2. We need to know the cost of the countermeasures $ This is something engineers are good at calculating.
  • 53. How will we determine cost and benefits?1 After you have established countermeasures2 Get the Crash Reduction Factor (% from list)3 Have a crash cost ($)4 Work out the value of the benefits of the countermeasures ($)5 Calculate the cost of the works ($)6 Calculate the benefit/ cost ratio
  • 54. Example of calculating the benefit cost ratio To work out the BCR we need to know the benefits(in $) of the countermeasures, and the cost (in $) of the countermeasures.
  • 55. Benefits - Indonesia needs to have atable that shows the Crash ReductionFactor for each countermeasure What percentage of crashes at the blackspot will be reduced if we seal the shoulders of the highway for one kilometre?

  • 59. If there were (say) 16 crashes at the location in 3 years –and 12 of these are motorcycle crashes - you would aim toprevent 50% of these 12 crashes in the next 3 years – thatis 6 crashes in the next 3 years If each crash costs IDR100,000,000 – you will claim benefits of IDR600,000,000 over 3 years – or IDR 4,000,000,000 for the life of 20 years Benefits = IDR4,000,000,000 Crash reduction factors based on real experience from the Victorian (Australia) blackspot program since 1980
  • 60. If the cost to seal the shoulders is (say) IDR200,000,000The Benefit/Cost Ratio will be 4,000,000,000 / 200,000,000 BCR = 20.0 This project will be compared with all other blackspots in your Balai – those with the highest BCR’s will be treated first. The others will wait for next year.....
  • 61. 20:1 BCR is excellentBut for now – concentrate on developing themost suitable countermeasuresBCR’s will only be needed for new blackspotsafter a few more years time
  • 62. Some Indonesian blackspots• Two blackspots at bridges – one rural, one urban• One blackspot at a Y junction• A blackspot at a small cross road intersection in a small town• A blacklength on a Highway in Sumatra• A black spot on a curve on a By-Pass

  • 67. The visibility before going over the crest of the bridge is obstructed, and the driver has noinformation about the presence of loop in front. The driver may know the road has fourlanes , but the first and second lane are forced to turn left.
  • 68. This direction sign was too late for the road user whowants to turn left to Sumenep/Latuharhary. 78
  • 69. The loop has very small radius. It is dangerous if a driver misjudges it and has a higherspeed than should be. The driver need to be warned with a speed limit of 30 km/hr. RECOMMENDATION
