PLANNING FOR CONCENTRATED IMPLEMENTATION OF HIGHWAY SAFETY COUNTERMEASURES, VOLUME III, DETAILED PROGRAM PLANS

IN ORDER TO JUSTIFY THE ALLOCATION OF MONEY TO EXISTING SAFETY PROGRAMS OR TO ALLOCATE NEW FUNDS TO INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS, A NEED EXISTS FOR SOME METHOD OF DETERMINING THE EFFICACY OF ACCIDENT COUNTERMEASURES. SIX PROGRAM CATEGORIES HAVE BEEN DEFINED COVERING THE RANGE OF ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE HIGHWAY SAFETY PROGRAM STANDARDS. FOR EACH OF THESE PROGRAM CATEGORIES, AN EVALUATION EXPERIMENT HAS BEEN DESIGNED THAT IS INTENDED AS A VEHICLE TO DEMONSTRATE RECOMMENDED PROGRAM EVALUATION METHODOLOGY AS WELL AS A MEANS OF OBTAINING THE REQUIRED INFORMATION FOR RATING THE FEASIBLE COUNTERMEASURES IN TERMS OF THEIR SAFETY EFFECTIVENESS. PROGRAM PLANS FOR EACH OF THE SIX EVALUATION EXPERIMENTS ARE CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT. EXPERIMENTS INCLUDE THE CATEGORIES: (1) ROAD USER REGULATION; (2) INFORMATION FLOW; (3) ROAD USER PREPARATION; (4) VEHICLE REGULATION; (5) SYSTEM RESTORATION; AND (6) HIGHWAY REGULATION. /AUTHOR/
