Accidents on horizontal curves cause a significant amount of pain and suffering to those involved in the accidents because of the nature of the collisions. Curves are necessary and important elements of every highway. Implementing strategies designed to improve the safety of horizontal curves will help achieve goal of highway safety. The goal of the strategic highway safety is to reduce annual highway fatalities. This goal can be achieved through the widespread application of low-cost, proven countermeasures that reduce the number of crashes on the highways. This paper provides an overall framework for coordinating a safety program. It will be of particular interest to safety practitioners with responsibility for reduce injuries and fatalities on the highway system.
