E – 1762 20 Proven Safety Countermeasures for Enhancing Safety on All Kinds of Roads
In this online engineering PDH course, a set of 20 Proven Safety Countermeasures that the FHWA has identified and is promoting are presented. The widespread use of these countermeasures can offer significant, measurable impacts as part of any agency’s data-driven, systemic approach to improving safety. These strategies are designed to enhance safety on all kinds of roads—from rural to urban, from high-volume freeways to less traveled two-lane State and county roads, from signalized crossings to horizontal curves, and everything in between. Each countermeasure addresses intersections, roadway departures, or pedestrian/bicyclist facilities—along with crosscutting strategies that address all three safety focus areas.
