This study aims to evaluate the use of the Road Safety Audit Program, by a local rural road jurisdiction, to avoid tort liability while still improving the safety of its road system. The study will provide how the RSA might be accepted within the current legal framework and will provide guidelines for...

 

While SafeStat was designed to prioritize carriers for monitoring and compliance reviews, the ISS was designed to prioritize carriers for roadside inspection. However, both algorithms use similar data to define a relatively unsafe carrier. It would be beneficial if there could be one uniform motor carrier...

 
Evaluation of Pavement Shoulders (May 1999, MPC-99-101)

In this study the researchers examined the effect of pavement shoulders on the safety and structural strength of highways in Wyoming. The costs of adding shoulders to various types of highways also was examined. The study consisted of selecting representative highway sections, collecting accident data...

 

This report documents the findings of the National Peer Exchange on Educational and Technical Assistance to Motor Carriers and Commercial Vehicle Drivers (ETA). The report identifies ETA best practices observed during site visits to the participating states and trucking companies.

 

Many rural governments do not have an effective safety improvement program for their roads, yet crash rates are significantly higher on rural roads than on urban, state, and federal roads. Smaller agencies seldom have the financial resources or expertise to provide comprehensive roadway safety improvement...

 

The results of this project demonstrate the need for functional sub-classifications of rural local roads, with design parameters that address the unique characteristics of these roads. Incremental improvements are an acceptable method to increase safety on unpaved rural roads and to minimize liability.

 

This report documents the findings of the National Peer Exchange on Hours-of-Service (HOS) Compliance that was conducted by a team of state and federal motor carrier safety delegates. It identifies states' best practices in the area of HOS compliance observed during site visits to 11 states during 1996.

 

North Dakota has more than 102,000 miles of rural roads. Approximately half of these roads are paved and the rest are gravel or dirt. Due to limitations in funding and shifts in traffic patterns, counties and townships are forced to make difficult decisions regarding the maintenance of their roads. Some...

 

The goal of the present study is to improve the effectiveness of highway safety inspections of motor carriers. This project evaluates the differences, if any, between violations found during the two broad classifications of inspections (anticipated or spontaneous). The data used are taken from all the...

 

This project examines the feasibility of developing a model from other data to ascertain the likelihood of a certain safety rating. This would enable efforts to be concentrated on the motor carrier firms with the least probability of achieving a Satisfactory rating and reduce the need to visit every...
