Abstract/Summary Traditional TSE approaches, based on chronological data including classical before-after studies, mainstream/statistical modelling and/or person judgment based approaches, has a long history. Despite the robustness of this established technique, this has not always been appropriate, as crash statistics are frequently questioned. Poor timeline, ethical issue, biasness and misjudgment also critical issues regarding this. For a more qualified and comprehensive form of safety analysis, there is a need for scientific methods that yield valid and reliable safety measures without the need for (or in addition to) accident data. At the very outset of this process, there is a need to pinpoint the confines of the current practices. This paper presents a critical review of state-of-the-art traditional approaches of TSE. The strengths and application challenges of those approaches which are also assessed based on methodological, as well as empirical grounds. Finally, future directions for traffic safety evaluation practices and researches are outlined.
