Optimizing Highway Patrol Investment Levels vs. Crash Outcomes

This project will focus on documenting the benefits of enforcement presence and the costs associated with enforcement presence on some of the higher risk road segments in Alaska. The study is expected to include the use of global positioning system (GPS) based automated tracking technologies to quantify the presence of enforcement patrol vehicles in the Matanuska-Susitna area safety corridors. The study will develop a benefit/cost relationship for fatal and major injury crashes compared to the cost of the enforcement hours and produce a sensitivity analysis to optimize the cost vs. benefit of reduced crashes.
