    Abstract

    This paper discusses possible countermeasures for traffic accidents involving university students using mopeds, based on recent research findings. The first part of this paper is a review of research about traffic accidents involving mopeds. Second, we show the importance of decreasing the encounter of mopeds with large-sized vehicles in order to decrease the number of accidents, in particular the number of fatalities caused by these accidents, based on a macroscopic statistical analysis of Japanese traffic accidents classified by vehicle types. In the last part of our paper, we argue for the necessity of a time dimensional transport demand management on campus as one possible and effective way to reduce encounters between mopeds and heavy vehicles.
