This document is the executive summary for the final report on a FHWA project entitled "Testing of Improved Evaluation Techniques Using a Representative Set of Accident Countermeasures." This report describes improved and updated highway accident costs and statistics developed from traffic accident and roadway data from five states (Alabama, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, and Texas), procedures for including other highway user costs in cost-effectiveness evaluations of highway accident countermeasures, and an improved cost-effectiveness methodology for highway safety. Computer programs were developed for three cost-effectiveness procedures--integer programming, dynamic programming, and incremental benefit-cost.
