A disaggregated model of the marginal external costs of road accidents imposed by different road users is developed. The model explicitly specifies the adjustment of road users to increases in accident risks imposed by additional road use and is used to estimate marginal external costs of road accidents. The results, under certain assumptions, are up to 50% less than those obtained using the The microeconomic analysis of the external costs of road accidents. By J. Peirson, I.

Firstly, road crash costs are regarded as a high-level outcome indicator for road safety management (Bliss & Breen, ).This indicator reflects the magnitude of road crashes as a socio-economic problem, which is influenced by the implementation of road safety policies, among ://
