A roadway departure crash is defined as a crash which occurs after a vehicle crosses an edge line or a center line, or otherwise leaves the traveled way. These type of crashes are frequently severe and account for the majority of highway fatalities. In 2015, there were 18,695 fatalities as a result of roadway departure crashes, which was 53.3 percent of all the traffic fatalities in the United States. Roadway departure crashes account for 46 percent of all traffic fatalities in California and is significantly higher in rural areas (approx. 80% in Northwest California).
The State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) is hosting a FREE workshop consisting of three parts. Participants will learn how to apply for federal funds, where their crashes happen, and what types of countermeasures are available. This workshop is in coordination with UC Berkeley, Caltrans, CHP, FHWA, NHTSA, OTS and PWD.
