The notes contain material developed for a series of regional seminars held during 1971-72 and additional material that was introduced during the seminars. The notes include a design philosophy based on what constitutes safe highway design. This requires increased awareness and concern toward the driver and facility operation. Design for safety must be concerned with the system rather than optimization of elements or pieces of the system. The report contains guidance for the development of designs that better fit the needs and expectations of the driver. Suggested uses of the report include background material for seminars, in-house traing, self-study, and university level courses.
