The Safety Edge: Your Angle for Reducing Roadway Departure Crashes

This DVD shows roadway departure, single vehicle accidents, zeroes in on one of the causes, and presents a countermeasure to decrease the likelihood of these traffic accidents. One of the causes of roadway departure accidents is pavement edge dropoff. These dropoffs can be created in the act of paving, when the pavement is constructed. Placing a safety edge on the paving machine would limit the creation of pavement edge dropoffs, and help to eliminate one of the causes of roadway departure accidents.
