On April 8th, 2021 FHWA hosted a webinar entitled “You Have Crash Data, Now What?” This webinar focused on Rural Roadway Departures, which make up a third of U.S. traffic fatalities—about 30 people a day. The Every Day Counts round five (EDC-5) initiative, Focus on Reducing Rural Roadway Departures (FoRRRwD), features four pillars: Addressing All Public Roads, Systemic Approach, Safety Action Plans, and Proven Countermeasures.
