Safety Countermeasures Program

It is critical that we install only countermeasures that impact the roadway environment positively. We receive many requests to install warning signs that warn of perceived problems and if we were to install warning devices such as signs for all perceived problems we would reduce the impact of all meaningful warnings and create a roadway environment that leads to driver complacency.
