Background: Although traffic accidents cause considerable economic losses and injuries to individuals, families, and communities, little is known about the impact of meteorological factors on the incidence of traffic accident injuries (TAIs).

Methods: Poisson generalized linear models (PGLM) combined with distributed lag nonlinear models (DLNM) were used to estimate the association between daily TAIs and ambient temperature in Dalian, China, 2015-2017. Read More
