The HSM or AASHTO Highway Safety Manual assists practitioners in selecting countermeasures and prioritizing projects, comparing alternatives, and quantifying and predicting the safety performance of roadway elements considered in planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation. The three-volume HSM or AASHTO Highway Safety Manual features a synthesis of validated highway research, procedures for including safety in project decisions, and analytical tools for predicting impact on road safety.
