This manual describes a comprehensive approach to traffic safety analysis, from collecting potentially useful information to ranking tentative solutions. Individual chapters can also be consulted and applied independently, such as to check a location’s crash ranking (Chapter 3), alternative crash countermeasures (Chapter 4) or the relative safety benefits and costs of a specific countermeasure (Chapter 5). Methods in the manual are prescribed in a step-by-step manner, incorporating simple equations and worksheets.
