Crash rates and rural intersections

Published: | Category: Research & reports | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

As traffic volumes grow on the rural road network and four-laning becomes necessary along many road sections, may of the priority-controlled intersections that provide local access to communities are reaching capacity or have safety problems.
