Countermeasures for Intersection Crashes

COURSE NO: C01-027
PDH CREDIT: 1
Countermeasures for Intersection Crashes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents estimates of the crash reduction that might be expected if a specific countermeasure or group of countermeasures is implemented with respect to intersection crashes.

 

The course presents crash reduction estimates as Crash Reduction Factors (CRFs). A CRF is the percentage crash reduction that might be expected after implementing a given countermeasure. One CRF is provided for each countermeasure. CRFs are presented in separate tables for signalization, geometric, and signs/markings/operational countermeasures. Traffic engineers and other transportation professionals can use the CRFs when asking the following types of question: Which countermeasures might be considered at the signalized intersection of Maple and Elm streets, an intersection experiencing a high number of total crashes and left-turn crashes? What change in the number of total crashes and left-turn crashes can be expected with the implementation of the various countermeasures?

 

The 1 PDH online course is intended for traffic engineers and other transportation professionals concerned with accident prevention at intersections.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with “crash reduction factors”
  • Familiarizing with CRFs for signalization, geometric, and signs/markings/operational countermeasures
  • Knowing how crash severity is taken into account in choosing an appropriate countermeasure
  • Understanding how existing control information, such as no signal, signal, stop, or stop/yield is taken into account in choosing an appropriate countermeasure
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled “Countermeasures for Intersection Crashes”, which is based on the U.S. Department of Transportation – Federal Highway Administration document “Toolbox of Countermeasures and Their Potential Effectiveness for Intersection Crashes”, publication number FHWA-SA-10-005, dated November 2009.

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 1 PDH credit. The quiz will be based on the entire document.
The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.
Certificate of Completion

Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
