1. Banerjee, Ipsita. Automobility in India: A Study of Car Acquisition and Ownership Trends in the City of Surat.

Degree: Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2011, University of California – Berkeley

Aided by economic development, India is undergoing rapid motorization. Growth of car ownership and use is attributed to rising per capita income and introduction of many car models are promoting the growth of ownership and use of cars. This growth portends a sea change in a country that relies mostly on non-motorized and public modes of transportation. It also signifies the transformation to a car based lifestyle in a country where motorized two-wheelers are the dominant personal motorized vehicle. Such a transformation calls for various policy pertaining to auto-ownership that aim to i) reduce fuel emissions, ii) enable environmental protection, and iii) support infrastructure development. This research aims to support such policy development by providing information on the substitutions among various categories of motorized vehicles owned by households. To this end, a primary survey was conducted in Surat, a prosperous, industrial city in western India in 2009. The survey involved home interviews of 196 motorized vehicle owning households. The research explains the effects of increased per capita income and of the decreasing sizes of households on the composition of motorized vehicle fleet. The analysis involves econometric modeling supplemented with qualitative observations based on interviews and interactions with the residents. The research focuses on the possible shift from motorized two-wheelers to cars, and the substitutions among different sizes of cars. It reveals that household income is the key determinant of the number and the sizes of cars that households own, and that household size is a much less significant factor; smaller vehicles are preferred even by larger households. Some of the possible reasons for this preference are the relative expense of larger vehicles, lax enforcement of regulations allowing many more passengers than mandated by the seating capacity, and the need for maneuverability for driving in congestion and for parking. An integrated choice and latent variable model is used to study the effect of different attitudes on the type of vehicles purchased, such as new versus pre-owned motorized two-wheelers or different sizes of cars. The results reveal that underlying perceptions and cultural beliefs regarding the different modes of transportation, attitudes on saving or spending money and similar subjective factors are not significant in explaining the type choice behavior of the households surveyed. Instead, the measurable vehicle attributes, such as price and cost of fuel, and those of household characteristics, such as household size, are what explains purchase behavior of these households.The contribution of this research is in analyzing the choice of car size categories in a developing country. In a single framework, it studies the substitutions among i) motorized two-wheelers and different sizes of cars, and ii) between new and used vehicles.

2. Wu, Dan. Quantification des causes des accidents de deux / trois-roues motorisés et de leurs conséquences corporelle (approche épidémiologique)s : Quantification of causes of motorized two/three-wheelers accidents and injury consequences (epidemiological approach).

Degree: Docteur es, Épidémiologie. Biostatistiques, 2018, Lyon

Contexte : les deux-roues motorisés (2RM) sont en forte évolution et la vulnérabilité de leurs usagers est de plus en plus manifeste. En 2013, dans le monde, les usagers de 2RM ont compté pour 23 % de la mortalité routière, devant les piétons (22 %). Dans ce contexte, la sécurité des usagers de 2RM est devenue une préoccupation sérieuse dans la plupart des pays. Contrairement à beaucoup de problèmes de santé publique, les principaux facteurs de l'insécurité routière en 2RM sont connus. L'enjeu d'aujourd'hui est surtout de quantifier leur effet sur la survenue d'accidents et d'évaluer les effets des quelques dispositifs de protection disponibles. Les objectifs de cette thèse sont de mieux connaitre les problèmes d'interaction entre les conducteurs de 2RM et les automobilistes selon différentes situations accidentelles (en particulier en intersection), de quantifier les effets des facteurs à l'origine de la survenue des accidents issus de la perte de contrôle du 2RM, et de mesurer l'efficacité des dispositifs de protection portés par les usagers de 2RM (casque intégral, blouson de moto, pantalon de moto, gants, bottes ou chaussures montantes et protection dorsale). Données : la réalisation des objectifs de la thèse s'appuie sur les données du projet VOIESUR, les données du Registre des accidents de la circulation du Rhône et les données recueillies au moyen d'une enquête postale réalisée auprès de 7 148 usagers de 2RM accidentés entre 2010 et 2014 identifiés par le Registre du Rhône. Résultats : Le problème de détectabilité des motos au niveau des intersections est confirmé. Dans la même situation d'interaction entre deux véhicules en intersection, un automobiliste a plus de difficulté à détecter une moto qu'à détecter un véhicule léger. Les facteurs suivants sont associés à la survenue des accidents de type perte de contrôle : alcool, type de moto, jour de l'accident, sinuosité de la route, adhérence de la route et vitesse. Nous soulignons le fait qu'une mauvaise adhérence de la route augmente considérablement le risque de perte de contrôle, en particulier lorsque la dégradation de l'adhérence est inattendue pour les motocyclistes en raison de la présence de gravillons, de corps gras, de nids de poule, etc. sur la route. En cas d'accident, les vêtements dédiés à la moto protègent les usagers des blessures. Ils sont efficaces pour éviter les dermabrasions et les plaies cutanées, mais ne semblent pas protéger des blessures plus graves telles que fracture, luxation ou entorse, sauf pour les bottes ou chaussures montantes qui réduisent le risque de fracture de la cheville ou du pied. Concernant les plaques dorsales, aucune efficacité n'a été montrée. Les casques intégraux protègent mieux le visage de l'usager du 2RM comparés aux non-intégraux, alors qu'aucune différence de protection du crâne ou du cerveau n'est mise en évidence entre les deux types de casques. Conclusion : Nos résultats mettent en évidence le problème de détectabilité d'un 2RM par les automobilistes en intersection et l'importance de l'état de la… Advisors/Committee Members: Hours, Martine (thesis director), Martin, Jean-Louis (thesis director).
