Transverse Rumble Strips at Rural Intersections

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  08/10/2020

Summary:

Investigation of the role of transverse rumble strips in alerting distracted or fatigued drivers at rural side-street stop controlled intersections, and whether the lack of effectiveness noted in some research studies is due to driver misjudgment of traffic gaps. Researchers also hope to recommend an optimal design that could lead to more utilization of transverse rumble strips at intersections with known stop sign-running issues.
