Check out the Latest Version of AASHTOWare Safety Analyst

November 13, 2019

AASHTOWare Safety Analyst is a tool that helps state departments of transportation implement highway safety improvements. This release encompasses the analytic approaches recommended in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Highway Safety Manual (HSM) and all parts of the highway safety management process, into a single software package. State DOTs implementing this new software tool can use this program to guide the decision-making process and prioritize safety improvements in order to get the greatest possible safety outcomes.

AASHTOWare Safety Analyst relies on information readily available to most state agencies: crash data, traffic data, and either roadway segment, intersection, or ramp data to:

  • Help maximize highway safety improvement program (HSIP) safety benefits.
  • Assist with identifying, prioritizing, and evaluating site-specific and systemic countermeasure improvement projects.
  • Save time by using software algorithms to automate network screening and complex calculations.
  • Computerize analytical tools that incorporate safety management techniques from the AASHTO HSM.
  • Provide a standard safety database structure.
