Road Safety Audits: Case Studies

Road Safety Audits (RSAs) are an effective tool for proactively improving the future safety performance of a road project during the planning and design stages, and for identifying safety issues in existing transportation facilities. To demonstrate the effectiveness of RSAs, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Safety sponsored a series of ten RSAs. The aim of these case studies was to demonstrate the usefulness and effectiveness of RSAs for a variety of projects and project stages, and in a variety of agencies throughout the United States. The results of the RSAs have been compiled in this case studies document. Each case study includes photographs, a project description, a summary of key findings, and the lessons learned. The aim of this document is to provide state and local agencies and Tribal governments with examples and advice that can assist them in implementing RSAs in their own jurisdictions.
