Countermeasures that Work Updates (7th and 8th editions)

The Countermeasures that Work guide was originally prepared in 2005, and has been updated annually with the 6th Edition published in January 2011. Updates to Countermeasures that Work will now be published biennially. This contract will cover the 7th and 8th Editions. The aim of this project is to update the Countermeasures that Work guide that now serves as a basic reference on traffic safety countermeasures for State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs). For this project, the Contractor shall develop a comprehensive search and screening strategy, obtain the appropriate and necessary documents (e.g. journal articles, technical reports, conferences proceedings, books), read, critically review, and evaluate each document for each of the countermeasures covered in the latest previous edition of the guide. If new research has been published since the previously published Countermeasures that Work guide was updated, then the Contractor shall be responsible for integrating this new research into the guide as appropriate. In addition, the inclusion of new topics that were not included in previous editions will be considered.
