Course Highlights



The purpose of this course is to encourage you to use this information to evaluate problems and implement appropriate treatments for problem curve locations. These treatments should help reduce roadway departure crashes, injuries, and fatalities.

This course summarizes practical information on where, when, or how to apply safety treatments for horizontal curves or winding sections. These treatments are relatively low cost versus geometric design improvements (degree of curve, shoulders, superelevation, curve length, cross-section, etc.). Information for each treatment generally included description, application guidelines, design elements and materials, effectiveness, and cost. Estimates for treatment effectiveness in reducing crashes were included if available. Actual observed effectiveness values of a treatment can vary depending on its location.

Some of the traffic control devices or treatments presented in this course may be considered to be experimental and not comply with the MUTCD.



Engineer Learning Objectives:

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

Basic Treatments = Devices found in the MUTCD

Enhanced Basic Treatments = Treatments considered to be enhancements to basic devices

Other Traffic Control Device Treatments = Treatments not in the MUTCD which are used by State and local agencies

Rumble Strips = Overview and applications

"Your concept of 'online' PE courses is both a timely and reasonably priced alternative. I wish I'd found CEU Leaf years ago."
