Road lighting as an aid to safety is also discussed. Sight distance, restrictive widths, railroad crossings and other potential hazards are covered, and the implementation of spot improvements is discussed in relation to accident locations, traffic volume, geometric standards for local roads, comparison of costs of alternate methods of correction, setting priorities and public support. Roadway lighting warrants and design are also covered.
