Improving Passing Lane Safety and Efficiency

This project examines the effectiveness of two low-cost measures that have the potential of influencing the behavior of drivers while on the passing lanes in Idaho's two-lane rural state highways. The two alternatives are: (1) improved signage upstream from and at the passing lanes; and (2) alternative striping and lane marking.
