Any road trip is incomplete without a map or a plan to get from one point to the next. Similarly, when considering safety on roadways, rural road practitioners need a plan – a Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP).
The LRSP is a Federal Highway Administration proven safety countermeasure and has been shown to reduce fatal crashes from 17-25 percent. They are so effective that in some states, an LRSP is required for road improvement funding.
