    • Abstract:
      The Crash Modification Factors (CMFs) in Practice: Using CMFs to Quantify Safety in the Development and Analysis of Alternatives guide describes and illustrates several opportunities to incorporate the latest methods to quantify safety in the development and analysis of design alternatives using CMFs. The target audience includes planners, engineers, and program managers responsible for the development, review, and evaluation of alternatives. The purpose of this guide is to help raise awareness of opportunities to consider and quantify safety in the development and analysis of alternatives, with a specific focus on the application of CMFs to support this process. The objectives are to 1) identify opportunities to consider safety in the various steps of the design process, 2) describe various methods available for quantifying safety using CMFs, and 3) explain when it would be appropriate to employ each method. By providing safety awareness, practitioners will be better prepared to assess the safety impacts of design alternatives and explicitly consider those impacts during the development and analysis of alternatives.
