Impact of Infrastructure Characteristics on Road Crashes on Two-Lane Highways

The purpose of the paper is three-fold: (1) to estimate the impact of infrastructure on crashes; (2) to develop a numerical coefficient to rate highway infrastructures; and (3) to develop a model for the prediction of crashes on two-lane rural highways based on their infrastructure coefficient. The paper suggests that the model used in this study can be used in evaluating alternatives for new highways or in improving the alignment and road features of existing highways.
