Roadway Visibility Research Needs Assessment

This report focuses on a review of issues related to nighttime visibility and assessment of how the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Safety’s three safety program areas—roadway departure safety, intersection safety, and pedestrian and bicycle safety—address concerns for nighttime visibility, as well as a review of fatality data and a gap analysis for research needs. In addition to the assessment of the three program areas, this report summarizes a survey of practices and policies of highway design, traffic engineering, and highway safety that are based on daytime conditions and may neglect issues and concerns that arise from nighttime conditions
