 Crash protection
• Can supplement and explain risk maps
• Useful when crash data are limited
• Identifies countermeasure options
Star Ratings based on Road
Protection Score
• Star rating based on features related to:
– head-on crashes
– run-off-road crashes
– intersection crashes
• Pilot tested in Phase I
• Validated in Phase III
