Low-Cost Roadway Safety Improvements

The purpose of this workshop is to show participants ways to reduce fatalities and injuries caused by road departures and collisions with fixed objects, as well as collision at rural intersections.  Low cost solutions for keeping the driver on the road will be taught with a focus on selection and implementation.  The forgiving roadside concept will be covered for when a vehicle departs the roadway.  Clear zones and what to do with hazards in them will be discussed.  The material will be presented with a combination of interactive lecture, group discussion and activities.
