Need to Identify Road User Needs to Reduce Crashes?

The Human Factors Guidelines for Road Systems May Be What You're Looking For

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 600: Human Factors Guidelines for Road Systems: Second Edition provides data and insights of the extent to which road users' needs, capabilities, and limitations are influenced by the effects of age, visual demands, cognition, and influence of expectancies. 

The Human Factors Guidelines for Road Systems document focuses on road user needs, capabilities, and limitations. It has been designed to be an aid for highway designers and traffic engineers through presentation of factual information and insights from scientific literature to be used in complement with other existing sources of road design information, such as the Highway Safety Manual.

NCHRP Report 600 provides guidance for roadway location elements and traffic engineering elements. The report also provides tutorials on special design topics, an index, and a glossary of technical terms.
