Reducing the number of fatal and injury crashes in the United States is a high-priority among federal, state, and local transportation agencies. Crashes in rural areas are often classified as speeding-related. To mitigate these crashes, traffic safety improvement programs should focus on crash reduction strategies in rural areas, with the most effective speed management programs focusing on reducing speeding-related crashes on moderate- and high-speed, two-lane rural highways.
This webinar identifies methods that may produce self-enforcing or self-explaining roadways during the geometric design process. While safety performance associated with these methods is not well-understood yet, an implied outcome of effective speed management is that less severe crashes will result via the application of self-enforcing or self-explaining road design principles. Six different self-enforcing road concepts and the processes needed to implement the concepts when designing or evaluating existing two-lane rural highways are identified and described during the webinar.
- Identify the key characteristics of a self-enforcing roadway
- Understand the relationship between design speed, target speed, speed limit and travel speed on roadways
- Discuss concepts and content from an ITE informational report on the subject
