Crash Reduction Factors. A crash reduction factor (CRF) is the percentage crash reduction that might be expected after implementing a given countermeasure at a specific site. For example, the installation of centerline rumble strips on a two-lane roadway can expect a 14% reduction in all crashes and a 55% percent reduction in head-on crashes.

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report Accident Modification Factors for Traffic Engineering and ITS Improvements explores the development of accident modification factors (AMFs) for traffic engineering and intelligent transportation system improvements. AMFs, also known as crash reduction factors, are designed to provide a simple . combine the available reduction factors or modification factors. Combining Crash Reduction Factors for a Single Entity An entity is a single intersection, a single roadway segment or one of any other roadway feature like a bridge. For example, an intersection may include the actual area shared by the intersection routes and a V-line of Size: KB.

Introduction. Research Results Digest November INTRODUCTION Crash or accident reduction factors (CRFs or ARFs) provide a quick way of es- timating crash reductions associated with highway safety improvements and are used by many states and local jurisdictions in pro- gram planning to decide whether to imple- ment a specific treatment and/or to. Accident reduction factors are used to predict the change in accident occurrence which a countermeasure can be expected to cause. Since ethical and legal obstacles preclude the use of randomized experiments when evaluating traffic safety improvements, empirical support for the causal effectiveness of accident countermeasures comes entirely from observational by: agencies, makes these estimates using crash reduction factors (CRFs). Since the development of ODOT’s original database in the early s, there have been substantial methodological improvements in the evaluation of engineering countermeasures that have resulted in a wealth of new published research. This study provided a.

Of th 19 have developed their own tables providing accident reduction factors for their state while the remaining 18 used reduction factors from other sources.
