Abstract
Accidents involving roadsides are typically extremely "unforgiving". Even though the roadside design can affect only
marginally the actual number of accidents occurring on a road, the severity of crashes can be considerably reduced if roadsides
are designed to be more "forgiving".
Within the IRDES project a practical and uniform guideline that allows the road designer to improve the forgivingness of the
roadside and a practical tool for assessing the effectiveness of applying a given roadside treatment have been produced for the
following set of roadside features: barrier terminals; shoulder rumble strips; forgiving support structures for road equipment;
shoulder width.
