An RSA is a formal safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by a multidisciplinary audit team. Road safety audits can be used on any size project, from minor maintenance to megaprojects, and can be conducted on facilities with a history of crashes, or during the design phase of a new roadway or planned upgrade. DVRPC has mostly used the tool on roadways of five miles in length or less, where there is a demonstrated history of crashes. A road safety audit is conducted to identify issues that compromise safety and to generate improvement recommendations. Emphasis is placed on identifying low-cost, quick-turnaround safety improvements, though not excluding strategies that are more complex.
