Go to google.com and type "runway incursions" in the search window. Tons of stuff there.

Runway incursions are a big thing with the UK CAA at the moment, if you contact the CAA Safety Regulation Group, they will be able to give you loads of information.

There was an incident at Calgary International (CYYC) a couple of years ago. A student pilot took off on an intersecting runway and forced an A320 to abort take-off. It turns out the student was confused about what the tower had cleared him for. Mixing training traffic with large commercial traffic does have some issues to look at. I learned to fly at CYYC and think it gave me some great experience, but there are definitely some risks that need to be addressed.

This has been a big topic in the US recently and there have been a few articles on AvWeb about it. I'm sure the FAA site would have some information.

You might want to study the incursion-related RTO which happened at Naples on the day you posted your question. Good timing.

In 1989-1990, the Air Transport Association (ATA) and the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) formed a group to study the RTQ overrun problem. The group was called the RTO Safety Task Force and consisted of airlines, pilot associations, government, regulatory agencies, and airframe manufacturers.
A Training package “the Takeoff Safe Training Aid” was developed.
This is available as video, CD and various paper manuals from NTIS. Boeing operators can download it from myboeingfleet.com
