This Circular summarizes the activities of a Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee on Roadside Safety Features (A2A04) Workshop, held in Irvine, California, July 31-August 2, 1995. The workshop, supported by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), brought together transportation professionals to discuss the current status of roadside safety research and explore new approaches and methods that could produce safety benefits in the coming decade. This Circular contains 12 invited papers, summarizes the findings of five breakout groups, and presents edited and combined versions of the research problem statements generated in those breakout group meetings. The rankings of these research problem statements by the workshop participants are provided.
