ROADWAY SAFETY - A REVIEW OF THE ONTARIO EXPERIENCE AND RELEVANT WORK ELSEWHERE

The report is divided into 4 sections, plus two appendices. Section 1, an introduction, describes the nature, methodology, scope and limitations of the project. Section 2 explores strategic directions for roadway safety research in Ontario. Using the framework described in Section 2, Section 3 identifies and prioritizes specific research programs. The final section reviews some current road safety research programs in other jurisdictions, and examines the program recommended to the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) in light of this review. The research recommendations are based on reviews of literature concerning safety of various roadway elements. These reviews are summarized in Appendix A. Each review begins with a statement of the issues, descriptions of MTO policy, and an Ontario accident experience, and ends with a qualified appraisal of the state of knowledge, an assessment of MTO policy, and a statement of research needs. Appendix B provides detailed summaries of data on which some of the accident profiles are based. These summaries are developed from analysis of traffic, inventory information, and accident data for Ontario roads under MTO's jurisdiction.
