The Highway Safety Manual can be used to identify sites with the most potential for crash frequency or severity reduction; identify contributing factors to crashes and mitigation measures; and estimate the potential crash frequency and severity on highway networks, among other uses.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Web-Only Document 323: Highway Safety Manual User Guide is a user-friendly, companion and reference document that helps safety analysts use the Highway Safety Manual.
