    IMPROVED SAFETY IS PRESENTED AS AN IMPORTANT POTENTIAL BENEFIT OF INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (ITS). SYSTEMS ARE EMERGING AND ARE UNDER DEVELOPMENT THAT ARE DESIGNED TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF ACCIDENTS AND THE SEVERITY OF THOSE ACCIDENTS THAT CANNOT BE PREVENTED. THESE SYSTEMS, AS WELL AS THOSE DEVELOPED TO ACHIEVE OTHER GOALS (SUCH AS CONGESTION REDUCTION) MAY HAVE BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE IMPACTS ON SAFETY. SAFETY EVALUATIONS OF ITS MUST INCLUDE A CONSIDERATION OF THE SAFETY CONSEQUENCES OF SPECIFIC ITS TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE DRIVING PUBLIC. THIS WORKSHOP, JOINTLY SPONSORED BY ITS AMERICA AND THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION, WAS HELD TO FOSTER BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROCESS OF EVALUATING THE SAFETY BENEFITS AND IMPACTS OF ITS.



    TUTORIAL PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES WERE DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE AN OVERVIEW AND DISCUSSION OF THE GOALS, CONSIDERATIONS, METHODS, AND LESSONS LEARNED IN THE SAFETY EVALUATIONS OF ITS DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS AND FIELD TESTS.
