Midwest Roadside Safety Pooled Fund Program

The Midwest Roadside Safety Pooled Fund Program is a collaborative program between state departments of transportation (DOTs) and the Midwest Roadside Safety Facility (MwRSF) dedicated to sponsoring roadside safety research. The goal of this program is to address the roadside safety needs of state DOTs, solve problems of similar interest, and standardize safety features across state borders. MwRSF and Pooled Fund member states eagerly welcome new members. The goals of the Midwest Roadside Safety Pooled Fund Program include: (1) improving highway safety by making the roadside less hazardous for motorists; (2) designing, developing, and crash testing innovative roadside safety hardware to current impact safety standards, such as the Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH); (3) conducting safety performance evaluations of existing roadside features; (4) performing computer simulation modeling of vehicle impacts with roadside hardware and geometric features; and (5) developing roadside safety guidance to aid transportation agencies in improving motorist safety.
