e-Guidebook Overview

This e-guidebook provides State departments of transportation (DOT) and metropolitan planning organization (MPO) planners with a framework for navigating the fundamentals and advanced methods of safety data collection and analysis. It also demonstrates how the results of that analysis can be applied to the performance-based transportation planning process to develop safety goals, objectives, performance measures, and targets; identify and prioritize projects; and evaluate progress towards safety priorities.

Use the tool bar to the left to navigate to different chapters of the e-guidebook. The e-guidebook includes guidance on institutional considerations, data needs, and analysis methods. The e-guidebook also provides examples from States and MPOs around the country to demonstrate “real-world” examples. It also includes some technical topics in the appendices for those interested in more details.

Overall, this guidebook provides a step-by-step approach for incorporating the results of safety data and analysis into performance-based transportation planning and programming processes.
