SKID RESISTANCE EVALUATION PROGRAM

The purpose of Indiana's skid testing program is to maintain a state-wide inventory of all primary highways with speed limits of 40 mph or higher; to perform special tests on selected sites; to aid in future planning and design of antiskid and durable construction; to provide skid information for counties and cities; and to evaluate high-accident locations. Specific action by the State Highway Commission to satisfy these objectives are presented. They include among others, a comparison of skid numbers on different surfaces skidded in 1975; a comparison of highest and lowest skid numbers; special test evaluation on pavements of different age and surface texture; research for a more safe and durable surface; and other special testing.
