Road Safety Audits can identify and address numerous roadway deficiencies.
A Road Safety Audit is a formal evaluation of a roadway section by an independent, multi-disciplinary team to identify specific recommendations for a section of roadway. An RSA team identifies risks using many different information sources such as crash data, maintenance logs, interviews of roadway authorities, public testimony, and multiple field observations then makes recommendations. Many Tribal Governments have utilized RSA to assist them in determining roadway deficiencies, maintenance issues and to help in the planning for future work and needs. RSA have also been effectively used to demonstrate safety needs to funding agencies.
