Getting to Know
ITE's Technical Programs Division

TE members benefit from the work conducted behind the scenes
by the ITE Technical Programs Division at ITE Headquarters in
Washington, DC, USA, often without knowing it. This monthly
column seeks to better inform our members of the technical products,
services, and partnerships that are being developed, facilitated, and
supported by ITE Technical Programs Division staff.

Self-Enforcing Roadways:
A Guidance Report
ITE, in a partnership with the Federal Highway Administration
(FHWA), is pleased to announce the release of a new FHWA report,
Self-Enforcing Roadways: A Guidance Report, developed under
contract with ITE. A self-enforcing road (sometimes referred to
as a "self-explaining roadway") is a roadway that is planned and

designed to encourage drivers to select operating speeds in harmony
with the posted speed limit. Properly designed self-enforcing
roadways can be effective in producing speed compliance and may
contribute to less severe crash outcomes. The purpose of this report
is to provide guidance on how to produce self-enforcing roadways.
The concepts can be applied to planned and existing roadways. This
report should be useful to local and state transportation professionals, private practitioners, and researchers interested in designing
and/or retrofitting roadways to induce drivers to drive at more
appropriate speeds.
Reducing the number of fatal and injury crashes in the United
States is a high-priority among federal, state, and local transportation agencies. Crashes occurring in rural areas comprise a majority
of the total crashes, many of which can be attributed to speeding.
Due to the large number of speeding-related crashes in rural areas,
traffic safety improvement programs should focus on crash reduction strategies in these rural areas, with the most effective speed
management programs focusing on reducing speeding-related
crashes on moderate- and high-speed, two-lane rural highways.
Therefore, this informational report and guidance document focuses
on methods to mitigate speeding-related crashes on two-lane rural
highways with posted speed limits of 35 mph or greater.
Self-Enforcing Roadways: A Guidance Report is available for free
online as a PDF for download at www.fhwa.dot.gov/publications/
research/safety/17098/index.cfm. The report was developed and
authored by Eric Donnell, Kristin Kersavage, and Lisa Fontana
Tierney, P.E., ITE's traffic engineering senior director. Lisa coordinated the development of the publication at ITE headquarters
as part of the ITE Technical Programs Division's efforts to provide
professionals with the latest information and solutions that can be
put into place today.
The following individuals served on a technical advisory committee that provided important review and feedback throughout
the development process: Geni B. Bahar, Marcus A. Brewer, Richard
C. Coakley, Timothy Colling, Richard J. Porter, Brian L. Ray, Rick J.
Staigle, and Nick Stamatiadis. The following individuals provided
content that was considered for inclusion in the report: Tom Hicks,
Terry Little, Gord Lovegrove, Paul Mackey, Don McKenzie, Patrick
O'Mara, and Steve Pyburn. ITE thanks these individuals for their
contributions.
Stay tuned to all of ITE's communication channels for continual
updates related to these types of resources. itej
