It is expected that highway agencies will experience several benefits from SafetyAnalyst:
- Effectiveness of Decision Making: SafetyAnalyst automates state-of-the-art statistical approaches described in the Highway Safety Manual (Part B) to improve the identification and programming of site-specific highway safety improvements. In some cases, SafetyAnalyst provides improved procedures for some functions that highway agencies already perform in automated fashion. In addition, SafetyAnalyst automates procedures that are now performed manually by highway agencies.
- Efficiency of Decision Support: SafetyAnalyst integrates all parts of the safety management process into a single, modular software package.
Potential benefits of implementing the individual SafetyAnalyst modules are as follows:
Diagnosis and Countermeasure Selection
Economic Appraisal and Priority Ranking
