Highway Safety Manual, PE Exam Edition This is the Highway Safety Manual, 1st Edition without its 2014 supplement. It is being made available for students preparing to take the Professional Engineers exam, which currently list this edition as a reference, but does not use the supplement. The Highway Safety Manual (HSM) was developed to help measurably reduce the frequency and severity of crashes on American roadways by providing tools for considering safety in the project development process.
The HSM assists practitioners in selecting countermeasures and prioritizing projects, comparing alternatives, and quantifying and predicting the safety performance of roadway elements considered in planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation. The three-volume HSM features a synthesis of validated highway research, procedures for including safety in project decisions, and analytical tools for predicting impact on road safety.
