Aerial images potentially contain a wealth of information relevant to the prediction of road safety if they could be thoroughly analyzed in great numbers. Coincident with the widespread availability of satellite and aerial images, machine learning algorithms for image processing and automatic object detection and classification are maturing. This allows the automated processing of huge amounts of image data by artificial neural networks (ANNs) or related machine learning systems - an area in which convolutional neural networks have shown a significant improvement over conventional methods. In the submitted work initial results on the application of machine learning on aerial images are presented. The goal is to determine an estimation of road safety levels. ANNs were trained to predict crash frequencies for road intersections relying merely on aerial images of the intersections. The used data consists of police recorded crashes in the city of Berlin and aerial images provided by the Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development. The performance of the ANN suggests that the line of research is worth further pursuit. For instance, the trained ANN was able to predict the presence of crashes on intersections in a Berlin district excluded from the training process with an accuracy of approximately 74%.
