Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning. Task 26. Transportation Safety and Investment

In any national assessment of investment needs in highways and transit considerations of investment requirements to support improved safety must receive highest priority. Present capabilities are limited in the ability to determine the key linkages between investment in infrastructure, particularly highway infrastructure, and safety. A broad document is required that can synthesize much of the current network that is being done within the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) and in other research venues such as the recent F Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) effort and also the Research and Technology Forum jointly developed among Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Transportation Research Board (TRB) and AASHTO. The document must assess needs for regulation and research as well as investment programs in order to assure that the scope and scale of an investment program for the future is embedded in the appropriate context. The overall approach must be to review potential safety-related investments and the anticipated impacts of those investments on fatalities, injuries, and accidents.
