Rural roadway departures make up a third of U.S. traffic fatalities—about 30 people a day. The Every Day Counts round five (EDC-5) initiative, Focus on Reducing Rural Roadway Departures (FoRRRwD), features four pillars: Addressing All Public Roads, Systemic Approach, Safety Action Plans, and Proven Countermeasures. This webinar focuses on the Proven Countermeasures pillar. State, local, and tribal agencies – come discover how low cost and maintenance treatments can provide significant benefits to reducing rural roadway departure crashes. • Destain Gingell, Lapeer County Road Commission, will discuss a proactive tree removal and trimming program that was established exclusively for enhancing roadside safety. • Kevin Kuther, Idaho Local Highway Technical Assistance Council (LHTAC), will discuss how local agencies in Idaho worked together to procure a pavement marking machine – reducing costs and completing more miles of restriping to keep drivers on the road. • Tom Honich, Missouri DOT, will discuss MoDOT’s systemic pavement marking program, evaluation studies demonstrating their effectiveness, and challenges and considerations for establishing a pavement marking program. • John Michael Walker, Alabama DOT, and Alabama LTAP, will present on Alabama’s Horizontal Curve Signing Program, curve signing evaluation, and working with locals to evaluate curves for signing updates.
