The two objectives of this proposed research are: 1) to investigate and quantify the relationship between skid resistance of a highway and the reported crashes on that highway, and 2) to investigate and quantify the relationship between skid resistance and the most severe occupant injury reported in a crash.
The information resulting from the project can be used in judging an optimal skid resistance from a safety standpoint and in developing a systems-based approach to when skid resistance of pavements is improved.
The research will investigate and establish relationships between skid resistance of highways and reported crashes as well as skid resitance and crash injury severity.
