Tribal Road Safety Audits: Case Studies

Road Safety Audits (RSAs) are an effective tool for proactively improving the future safety performance of a road project during the planning and design stages, and for identifying safety issues in existing transportation facilities. To demonstrate the usefulness and effectiveness of RSAs for tribal road agencies, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Safety and Office of Federal Lands sponsored a series of four tribal RSAs.

The results of the tribal RSAs have been compiled in this case studies document. Each case study includes photographs, a project description, a summary of key findings, and the lessons learned. The aim of this document is to provide tribal governments with examples and advice that can assist them in implementing RSAs in their own jurisdictions.
