Review of United Kingdom Skid Resistance Policy

Revision de la politique sur l'adherence au Royaume-Uni

The United Kingdom has implemented a policy to manage skid resistance and skidding accidents on its road network. This paper describes the results of the accident analysis, which has led to a revision of the site categories and investigatory levels and changes to the way that potential maintenance schemes will be evaluated. Information about pavement conditions, road geometry, and accident data was correlated to skid resistance information to produce a profile of accident risk. The study demonstrated that there is a wide range of accident risk present on sites within the same site category and that better procedures are needed to identify sites where accident risk could be reduced.
