Grounded in evidence-based practices and before-and-after data analysis, practical-based design emphasizes context-sensitive solutions and safety results over narrow adherence to design values. The webinar describes a number of FHWA resources to help improve the safety performance of transportation projects, including the Crash Modification Factors Clearinghouse.
