Becky P.Y. Loo is professor of geography and director of the Institute of Transport Studies at the University of Hong Kong. Her research interests are transportation, e-technologies, and society. In particular, she is interested in applying spatial analysis, surveys, and statistical methods in analyzing pertinent issues related to sustainable transportation. She is editor-in-chief of Travel Behaviour and Society and associate editor of the Journal of Transport Geography. She is also on the editorial boards of Asian Geographer, Injury Epidemiology, International Journal of Shipping and Logistics, International Journal of Sustainable Transportation, Journal of Urban Technology, and Transportmetrica A: Transport Science. Tessa Kate Anderson is a researcher at the Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen. She has previously worked at the University of Hong Kong, the University of Queensland, and the University of Canterbury. She completed her Ph.D at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis in London. Her research interests are transportation, road safety, and socioeconomics. In particular, she is interested in the links between socioeconomics and road safety, the effects of climate change on road safety and transport, and the application of spatial analysis. She has published research papers in Accident Analysis and Prevention, Environment and Planning B, and Cities.
"The spatial organization of road accidents is not only an ideal
topic for illustrating and understanding spatial statistics, but
also for helping road safety practitioners to improve road safety.
I'm looking forward to read[ing] this book written by a well
recognised researcher, a book that will for sure interest a broad
and diversified audience."
-Isabelle Thomas, Universite catholique de Louvain, Belgium
"We have a number of books in traffic safety, but this is the
first one-to the best of my knowledge-with a 'spatial' focus...
Well-written by knowledgeable road safety experts."
-Fred Wegman, Professor of Traffic Safety, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands
"... timely and useful and necessary ... We are talking about
world class researchers taking on a compelling topic that is
buzzing around the research world. This book will be as seminal as
the book on discrete choice model by Ben-Akiva and Lerman. ... The
writing is flawless and is a pleasure, not surprising when you are
familiar with their previous work! I would like the book, now!"
-Carlo Giacomo Prato, DTU Transport, Denmark
"... an excellent book that is well structured and easy to read.
It has a very clear focus on a very important and useful
methodological approach. ... The spatial analysis methods are
presented clearly and simply but with sufficient details for both
students and researchers to acquire the necessary knowledge to
appreciate and perform similar analyses. Overall, it is an
essential text for students and researchers in spatial analysis,
transportation and traffic safety."
-Richard Tay, RMIT University, Australia
