Abstract:

This Highway Safety Information System (HSIS) summary replaces an earlier one, Evaluation of Lane Reduction “Road Diet” Measures and Their Effects on Crashes and Injuries (FHWA-HRT-04-082), describing an evaluation of “road diet” treatments in Washington and California cities. This summary reexamines those data using more advanced study techniques and adds an analysis of road diet sites in smaller urban communities in Iowa.
