This study conducted a detailed examination of recent crash data through the development of a speeding related (SR) crash typology to help define the crash, vehicle, and driver characteristics that appear to result in a higher probability of SR crashes.

This report contains the findings of research performed to quantify the safety and operational impacts of design element trade-offs and their associated risks. The report details the research performed and includes specific recommended crash prediction models and Accident Modification Factors (AMFs) for shoulder width and median width on rural four-lane roads. Thus, the report will be of immediate interest to engineers in state highway agencies responsible for geometric design and traffic operations and safety.

This report presents the findings of a research project to determine the crash rates for nighttime and daytime work zones, develop management practices that promote safety and mobility in work zones, and develop work-zone crash reporting recommendations to further improve the data collected on work zone crashes.

The objective of this project was to develop a knowledge-based expert system for recommending speed limits in speed zones that are considered to be credible and enforceable.
