Abstract: Overtaking accidents have one of the most serious consequences of accidents on German rural roads. The aim of this project was to determine the infrastructural and traffic related variables which influence the occurrence and consequences of overtaking accidents as well as the overtaking behavior of drivers. Finally, diverse correlations between operational and infrastructural road characteristics and overtaking accidents and driver behavior were found out and a catalogue of measures had been developed. The given recommendations will have beneficial influences on overtaking behavior and their practice will lead to an increase in safety on two-lane rural roads.
