Roadside Safety Device Crash Testing Program

This project provides the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) with a mechanism to quickly and effectively evaluate high priority issues related to roadside safety devices. Roadside safety devices shield motorists from roadside hazards such as non-traversable terrain and fixed objects. To maintain the safety of the motoring public, these safety devices must be designed to accommodate a variety of site conditions, placement locations, and a changing vehicle fleet. As changes are made or in-service problems encountered, there is a need to assess the compliance of existing safety devices with current vehicle testing criteria and to develop new devices with enhanced performance.
