Develop Statistical Models Quantifying the Relationship between Pavement Surface Friction Characteristics and Traffic Accident Rates

The objective of this study is to quantify the relationship between pavement surface friction characteristics, traffic accident rates, and any other factor(s) deemed important. It will also determine and recommend critical threshold levels below which crash rates would significantly increase. Ultimately, this would allow for data-driven decision making and better allocation of resources for high safety in Florida.
