Quantifying Safety in the Road Safety Audit Process

The Quantifying Safety in the Road Safety Audit (RSA) Process guide describes and illustrates opportunities to incorporate the latest tools and techniques to quantify safety in the RSA process. The target audience includes RSA program managers, RSA study teams, and those supporting RSA study teams. The purpose of this guide is to help raise awareness of opportunities to apply crash modification factors (CMFs) in the RSA process. The objectives are to (1) identify opportunities to apply CMFs in the various steps of the RSA process, (2) describe the process of applying CMFs to quantify safety, and (3) explain potential challenges related to the application of CMFs and opportunities to overcome those challenges. Readers will better understand the purpose of CMFs and how they can be applied in the RSA process.
