Wrong-way driving (WWD) crashes cause hundreds of fatalities and thousands of injuries annually in the United States. Although WWD crashes have been a concern since the advent of access-controlled divided roadways, the problem persists despite efforts to address it over time.

NCHRP Research Report 1050: Wrong-Way Driving Solutions Handbook, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, is a handbook to help reduce the risk of WWD crashes.

Supplemental to the report is NCHRP Web-Only Document 357: Wrong-Way Driving Solutions, Policy, and Guidelines.
