The crash rate on a heavily traveled two-lane rural highway is abnormally high. The
corridor is 14 miles long with an ADT of 34,000. An investigation has determined that
head-on collisions are most common with an RMVMT of 4.5 and are caused by vehicles attempting to pass. Determine an appropriate countermeasure and calculate the
estimated yearly reduction in total crashes.

Expert Answer

Step 1

Given the following information:

Length of the road =14 miles.

Average daily traffic, ADT = 34,000.

Total crash rate, RMVMT = 4.5.

To find: An appropriate countermeasure and calculation of the estimated yearly reduction in total crashes.

Step 2

Following formula is used:
