Highway safety engineer hopes Virginia officials improve roadways

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has just completed a study suggesting inexpensive improvements can make many roads safer.  According to the senior transportation engineer at the institute, Richard Retting, the study focused on six intersections along Route 7 in northern Virginia.

Retting said the number of accidents at the sites dropped at rates ranging from 42 to 100 percent after minor roadway or traffic signal changes were made.  Hoping the Virginia Department of Transportation uses the findings to make inexpensive safety improvements on highways across the state, Retting believes the study can help improve the state’s roadways.
