Abstract

Highway Capacity Manual - HCM, is the primary tool used for analysis and design of highway (rural and urban) facilities. Their recommendations and decisions are made based primarily on operational measures. Studding the HCM methodologies and procedures we concluded there currently exist no tools to help the traffic practitioner determine the likely impact on safety of operational, road and terrain changes. Namely, there is no traffic safety integration into the Manual. Our primary purpose is to focus on issues associated with the development of a comprehensive safety-based methodology, making an overview of the background and currently used safety Level Of Service-LOS models and methodologies, and secondly to present a case study approach for M-5 two lane two way highway in the Republic of Macedonia. Here the accident frequency as a proposed “Measure Of Effectiveness-MOE” is emphasized.
