||Low-speed accidents involving public transport buses in the city of Uppsala, Sweden, during the years 1986-2000 were coded according to 17 variables. It was found that more than a quarter of all accidents occurred at bus stops. It is argued that the validity of this database exceeds that of company self-reports and reports from state and police archives, due to more extensive reporting and corroborating experience. The practical usefulness of these results and accident classifications in general are discussed.
