This course will present current guidance for implementing traditional and emerging countermeasures to reduce wrong-way driving (WWD) crashes on freeways and divided highways in the state of Alabama. Each year, hundreds of fatal WWD crashes occur across the United States, and thousands of injuries are reported in crashes caused by wrong-way (WW) drivers. After collecting eight years of crash data (2004-2011) from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) database, an average of 269 fatal crashes resulting in 359 fatalities was found to occur each year due to WWD.
