Evaluation of Low-Cost Safety Improvements (ELCSI-PFS)

The goal of this research is to develop reliable estimates of the effectiveness of the safety improvements identified as strategies, including but not limited to, those in the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 500 Guidebooks. These estimates will be determined by conducting scientifically rigorous before-and-after evaluations at sites in the United States where these strategies are being implemented. This work will support efforts towards Vision Zero and the Safe Systems Approach.
