AbstractIn this paper, the spatial characteristics of road crashes in Hong Kong are analyzed. This paper first introduces the hot zone terminology in road safety research. Then, the methodological issues and difficulties are discussed. Finally, the spatial characteristics of road crashes in Hong Kong in 2004 are analyzed by the hot zone methodology. In particular, the hot zone methodology is compared with the blacksite methodology, which is commonly used by road safety administrations worldwide. The analysis is important both theoretically in enriching our ways of conceptualizing and identifying hazardous road locations and practically in providing useful information for addressing road safety problems. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
