NJLTAP – Curve Advisory Speeds (Webinar)
- April 11, 2022
- 1:00 pm–2:00 pm
In 2021, NJ had 691 fatalities on public roads. Over 60% of these involve roadway departure. Nearly 30% involved a curve. On a national level we have three times as many crashes occur on curves compared to straight sections of roadways. These statistics make horizontal curves prime sites for safety improvements.
Key to these improvements is a setting a proper curve advisory speed. This webinar will cover what you can do to keep the public on the road and how to properly set curve advisory speeds using procedures outlined in the MUTCD. The different devices used to set advisory speeds will be discussed.
