Plan4Safety - New Jersey's Crash Analysis and Decision Support Tool with Case Studies

Plan4Safety is a powerful tool that provides a myriad of benefits for safety professionals in New Jersey. This web-based application is a multi-layered decision support program for transportation engineers, planners, enforcement, and decision makers in New Jersey’s transportation and safety agencies to analyze crash data in tabular and geospatial forms. Besides identifying crash hot spots which merit further investigation, and prioritizing them for potential safety improvements, Plan4Safety integrates statewide crash data and roadway characteristic data, calculates statistical analyses, incorporates network screening layers and models, offers a diagnosis and countermeasures tool based on Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) best practices, prioritizes countermeasures using economic analysis methods, proposes safety countermeasure post-evaluation and includes a visual analytical tool (GIS). In this paper, different functionalities provided by Plan4Safety and technical methods supporting then are presented followed by a number of real cases illustrating Plan4Safety applications.
