Safety Evaluation of Improved Curve Delineation

  title={Safety Evaluation of Improved Curve Delineation},
  author={Daniel Carter},
FOREWORD The goal of this research was to evaluate and estimate the effectiveness of improved curve delineation on rural two-lane undivided roads as one of the strategies in the Evaluation of Low-Cost Safety Improvements Pooled Fund Study (ELCSI-PFS), Phase II. This strategy is intended to reduce the frequency of crashes related to lack of driver awareness approaching curves as well as while navigating through curves by providing more conspicuous signing and lane markings. The safety… CONTINUE READING
