    The objective of this research was to determine what influence geometric design elements of roadway may have on driver behavior during the overtaking maneuver. This was part of a larger research effort to eliminate crashes (and the resulting fatalities and injuries) between bicycles and motorized by: 6. Background. Over the last decade, a horizontal curve within the parks' limits experienced a high frequency of wet crashes. This curve, shown in Figure 1, is located on US , a two-lane, rural highway in Del Norte County, approximately one mile east of the South Fork Road intersection.

    REVIEW OF THE SAFETY BENEFITS AND OTHER EFFECTS OF ROADWAY LIGHTING FINAL REPORT Prepared for National Cooperative Highway Research Program Transportation Research Board of The National Academies Mark S. Rea, John D. Bullough, Charles R. Fay, Jennifer A. Brons, John Van Derlofske Lighting Research Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Troy, NY. The lateral clearances for major roadway underpasses are illustrated in the AASHTO Green Book, Chap Exhibit For a two-lane roadway or an undivided multilane roadway, the minimum lateral clearance from the edge of the traveled way to the face of the protective barrier should be the normal shoulder width. On divided.

This project is MDOT’s first large implementation of a customized Android smartphone to collect road roughness data using a methodology developed from previous research work performed by UMTRI. roadway where the traffic accident often occurs is called a black spot.. The safety deficiencies were detected to minimize accidents and save the road users. The deficiencies along with the measures for further improvement have been presented in this paper. Keywords – Impact, Roadway condition, Traffic, Road safety, Black spot analysis.

Interaction (AFD90) Committee. This committee set up a task group on Roadway Surface Discontinuities and Safety. That group was active from until the publication of TRB’s first state of the art report in That report, “The Influence of Roadway Surface Discontinuities on Safety,” was the culmination of the task group’s work.

TRB’s Transportation Research Circular E-C Influence of Roadway Surface Discontinuities on Safety is designed to help highway engineers evaluate roadway maintenance guidelines and priorities.

The report addresses safety issues related to roadway roughness, holes, and bumps; the positive effects of road surface discontinuities; pavement edges; friction variations; water accumulations. The Influence of Roadway Surface Discontinuities on Safety It is generally recognized that discontinuities in roadway surfaces can cause problems with vehicle steering, braking, maneuvering, and response that lead to loss of control.

THE INFLUENCE OF ROADWAY SURFACE DISCONTINUITIES ON SAFETY. INTRODUCTION-CHAPTER 1. Safety on the highways is a function of many variables, include the condition of drivers, vehicles, weather, and the by: 2. A comprehensive test program was developed to evaluate the safety related effects of roadway surface discontinuities in the form of holes in pavement, cOlllnonly referred to a-s potholes.

Since there is an infinite number of pothole shape, area and depth combinations, and a large number of vehicle suspension. AASHTO Yellow Book discussed the problem of sharp angles of break to side slopes for high-speed roads [5].

In their listing of hazardous surface discontinuities associated with accidents caused by roadway disturbances, Ivey and Griffin ranked pavement/shoulder drop-offs at the top of the list [6].

The report summarizes the development of meaningful test procedures and performance parameters that can be used for evaluating vehicle stability against, and/or recovery from, roadway disturbance inputs.

A: The following is from our book McHenry Accident Reconstruction in the section Vehicle Control Factors: (a list of references is also below) Hydroplaning OR Hydrodynamic Drag. Dynamic hydroplaning occurs when the amount of water encountered on the roadway by a rotating tire exceeds the combined drainage capacity of the tread pattern of the.
