As roundabouts become increasingly popular, and as many communities promote bicycle use, the safety of roundabouts for people bicycling is of major concern. In this project, we studied bicyclists' safety perceptions of and preferences for roundabouts with different characteristics. First, we performed...

 

Roadside safety is a critical aspect of transportation management, with elements like rigid obstacles, guardrails, clear zones, and side slopes significantly impacting accident outcomes. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides a valuable rating system for departments of transportation (DOTs)...

 

Annually, many injuries and fatal crashes happen on local rural roads in North Dakota. The local road safety program (LRSP) strategy has been proven effective in reducing crashes on these roads. It relies on state engagement with local stakeholders to collectively reduce crash injuries in their communities....

 

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) needs to respond quickly and adapt to the coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure continuation of critical infrastructure support and relief for the American people. Since early March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has had significant impact on traffic across the United...

 

Truck crashes on steep downgrades caused by excessive brake heating is an ongoing concern for the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT). Crashes resulting from brake failure on downgrades cause a devastating toll on lives and property. To counter such crashes, WYDOT initiated a research project...

 

As a result of the considerable differences in mass between vehicles and trains, crashes at highway-rail grade crossings (HRGCs) often result in severe injuries and fatalities. Therefore, HRGC safety is considered a crucial transportation safety issue. Transportation decision makers and agencies need...

 

Road safety is a crucial topic of transportation engineering. The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) collects such data from police crash reports and roadway inventories. WYDOT also provides those data to its partner groups in the form of data records or summary statistics documented in periodical...

 

performance in the presence of variable road hazards. Road networks plagued by consistent weather or work zones affecting driving conditions are where VSL systems could improve safety. Depending on the road condition and objective of the VSL installation, the system could be advisory or regulatory. In...

 

Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) driving features can impact traffic safety in many aspects owing to their improved driving behavior. On the other hand, road geometric design elements are mainly based on human reactions and behavior, which might affect safety depending on road layout and the parties...

 

For decades, work zone traffic safety under adverse weather conditions has been a serious concern for drivers and transportation agencies. Natural hazards often cause disruptions on roads and bridges and work zones during the retrofitting process. Existing studies on work zone traffic safety with statistical...
