Abstract:

This book which provides guidelines for evaluating ongoing and completed safety improvement projects and programs, describes the history and framework of the highway safety improvement program, discusses management issues and the need for evaluation. Four evaluation subprocesses are detailed. The accident-based project evaluation subprocess assesses the value of a completed highway safety project. The non-accident-based subprocess assesses the intermediate effectiveness of a completed safety project prior to the accident-based evaluation. This subprocess maybe used when accident data are not available, insufficient, or when an indication of project effectiveness is desired sooner. The program evaluation subprocess assesses the value of an ongoing or completed safety program. The administrative evaluation subprocess helps determine the manpower, time, money and material used, the difference between planned and actual resource expenditures, and the implementation of outputs obtained per unit of input associated with implementing highway safety projects and programs.
