Evaluation of Different Methods to Identify Sites that Require Safety Investigations

The objectives of this research are to compare the performance of different screening methods and determine if particular method(s) are more optimal for identifying locations susceptible to cost-effective safety improvement. Multiple methods including the method currently being used by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) as part of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), and methods discussed in the Highway Safety Manual (HSM), will be included. Combination of methods will be considered as well.
