Intersection Safety Case Study: Reducing Late-Night/Early-Morning Intersection Crashes By Providing Lighting

This case study is one in a series documenting successful intersection safety treatments and the crash reductions that were experienced. Traffic engineers and other transportation professionals can use the information contained in this case study to answer the following questions: What are some low-cost countermeasures that can reduce late-night/early-morning crashes (many with injuries) at urban and rural intersections? How many crashes did the treatments reduce? Are there any implementation issues associated with lighting, and if so, how can they be overcome? This case study showcases the results of three studies which examined lighting enhancements at more than 50 intersections in Minnesota and Kentucky, installed to reduce crashes associated with poor visibility at intersections during late-night/early-morning hours.
