Project Details

Project Description: 

Under Development of Crash Modification Factors (DCMF), Task A; develop reliable crash modification factors. (2) Under DCMF, Task B; finding new statistical methodologies and improving existing ones, conduct CMFs Gap analysis, research needs, and stakeholder meetings, determine high-priority national safety concerns and their corresponding focus States for systemic safety improvements and evaluations, and other tasks as required.

Goals

This study will:

  • Develop scientific and reliable crash modification factors for low-cost to high-cost priority safety improvements.
  • Advance highway safety research for before/after evaluation by finding new statistical methodologies and improving existing ones.
  • Conduct crash modification factors (CMFs) Gap analysis, research needs, and stakeholder meetings.
  • Determine high priority national safety concerns and their corresponding focus states for systemic safety improvements and evaluations.
  • Others as identified.
