Twenty-eight ROR collisions have occurred within a three-block section of Northgate Drive in Waxahachie, TX. The section of roadway consists of a horizontal reverse curve (S-curve) and a horizontal simple curve connected by a short straight section of roadway. An ROR collision is a single-vehicle crash that occurs when a vehicle leaves the roadway and strikes a fixed object or overturns.
The report examines:
Horizontal curve collisions and countermeasures to improve the safety of a curve
Traffic Calming Countermeasures: Horizontal shifts, vertical deflections, narrowing of roadway and lane closure
Existing roadway alignment
Existing speed and warning mechanisms
Technical and legal requirements and specifications.
The recommendation component provided a structured approach to involve law enforcement, city officials and engineers, and the stakeholders: residents. The program incorporated multiple countermeasures, each providing support to the totality of the program objectives:
Decrease the rate of ROR crashes
Reduce vehicle speed
Improve roadway safety for vehicular traffic, pedestrians and residents
