IMPLEMENTATION OF PROVEN TECHNOLOGY IN MAKING THE HIGHWAY ENVIRONMENT SAFE
This effort to identify factors limiting the application of known technology for making highways safer, and to develop strategies for achieving greater application, identified the need for the adoption of a certain philosophical approach by designers, administrators, legislators, and others in the decision-making process. This approach requires that "safety" be "designed in". This project effort included a thorough literature search in the area of highway design; an economic analysis for the priority ranking of cost-effective programs; the determination of the problems in information dissemination and program implementation in the area of highway design; and the formulation of strategies to overcome these problems.
