THE CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF A DRIVER PERFORMANCE MODULE

In the 1980s there was a "renewed interest in safety and geometric design in the United States" and by 1988 the Federal Highway Administration initiated a program for a systematic and efficient approach to geometric design. This initial step ultimately evolved into the concept of the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM). The IHSDM is essentially a sophisticated software tool which, when completed, will "provide information on safety and geometrics in a format that a highway designer can use." This paper briefly describes the current version of the IHSDM and its modules and discusses the nature of and issues related to the development of the Driver Performance Module (DPM).
