Wrong-way driving crashes represent approximately 1 percent of the total number of traffic-related fatalities annually. TRB hosted a webinar on Wednesday, March 27, 2024 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Eastern that provided an overview of NCHRP Research Report 1050: Wrong-Way Driving Solutions Handbook that provides the latest solutions to wrong-way driving incidents and crashes on roadways. Presenters shared experiences, challenges, and successful strategies employed by the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT). Presenters also discussed how to secure funding, collect incident data, conduct a statewide network screening, and implement effective, low-cost countermeasures at ramp terminals and unsignalized intersections on divided highways.
This webinar was also based on NCHRP Web-Only Document 357: Wrong-Way Driving Solutions, Policy and Guidelines.
This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program.
The slides are available. Please contact for a link to the recording. There may be a $90 fee.
