Self-Enforcing Roadways

n January 2018, the Federal Highway Administration published a report, Self-Enforcing Roadways: A Guidance Report (FHWA-HRT-17-098), which provides details on how to produce “self-enforcing” roadways. A self-enforcing road, also called a self-explaining roadway, is planned and designed to encourage drivers to select operating speeds consistent with the posted speed limit. Engineers can apply the concepts to both planned and existing roadways. This article summarizes several of the concepts that transportation professionals may use to manage speeds on two-lane rural highways; however, many of the concepts may also be applicable to other roadway types.
