Use of SHRP2 NDS Data to Evaluate Roadway Departure Characteristics, Phase II

The goal of the research proposed for Phase II is to better understand the relationship between driver, roadway, and environmental characteristics and roadway departures. The research will focus on assessing the impacts of specific roadway factors and countermeasures in order to provide agencies with better information about which countermeasures are effective and why. The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) NDS and RID data offer a rich source of data to explore these relationships. A firsthand account of the scenario preceding safety critical events including presence of distractions and speed can be directly investigated. Analyses of these safety critical events provides the most valuable insight into safety risk.
