About the Webinar

A new initiative entitled Data-Driven Safety Analysis (DDSA) was created under the third round of the FHWA Every Day Counts (EDC). The objective of this EDC-3 initiative is to incorporate safety performance into all highway investment decisions, by broadening implementation of predictive and systemic safety analysis. DDSA has many benefits:

  • Informed Decision-Making: By quantifying the safety impacts associated with roadway planning and design, transportation professionals, elected officials, and the general public can make more informed decisions by weighing safety with other project goals.

  • Optimizing Investment:With limited resources, agencies need to maximize the safety benefit of every transportation investment. By applying the most current analytical methods, agencies have powerful tools to optimize investments and the safety of all users.

  • Improved Safety: State, Local, and Tribal agencies can proactively apply safety countermeasures at roadway locations identified as having the highest potential for improvement, effectively reducing fatalities and serious injuries.
