Road Safety Audits

A Road Safety Audit is a formal evaluation of a roadway segment by an independent, multi-disciplinary team to identify specific safety recommendations. An RSA team identifies safety risks using many different information sources such as crash data, maintenance logs, interviews of roadway authorities, public testimony, and multiple field observations. The identified risks are prioritized and addressed with both low-cost and high-cost recommendations. Many Tribal Governments have utilized RSA to assist with determining roadway deficiencies, maintenance issues and planning for future work that benefits transportation safety. RSA have also been successfully effectively used to demonstrate safety needs to funding agencies.
