Road Safety Audit Program

Montgomery County’s Road Safety Audit (RSA) Program, which began in 2008, is a key strategy of the County's Vision Zero Initiative to eliminate serious injuries and fatalities from our roadways. The audits, which are based on the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) guidelines, use a data-informed approach to identify safety issues at the County’s High Incidence Areas (HIAs) – areas identified as having the highest rates of crashes.  While the RSA program initially focused on pedestrian related crashes through Pedestrian Road Safety Audits (PRSA), it was expanded in 2017 to audit roadways with the highest rates of serious injury and fatal crashes for all travel modes collectively (people driving, walking/rolling, and biking).  These roadways comprise the County's High Injury Network (HIN), with the associated audits providing recommendations for improving safety for all roadway users.

Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT), in coordination with Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) and other agencies, continues to conduct road safety audits with those completed shown in the interactive map.
