Summary:
This report documents and presents the results of a study that establishes a rational approach to the development of highway safety improvement programs. A system has been devised for ranking improvements based on their costs and their effectiveness in reducing accidents. The cost- effectiveness analysis provides a framework for comparison of alternative actions on a common basis. The approach is described and  Read more...

Abstract:

This report documents and presents the results of a study that establishes a rational approach to the development of highway safety improvement programs. A system has been devised for ranking improvements based on their costs and their effectiveness in reducing accidents. The cost- effectiveness analysis provides a framework for comparison of alternative actions on a common basis. The approach is described and illustrated by a comprehensive example. For derivation of the analysis approach, use was made of general or typical numerical values. By substitution of state or regional data, the approach can be converted into an analytical tool. The existing form and data have value in bringing out the probability aspects of roadside elements in safety.
