Asset Management

A Tool to Save Lives, Time, and $$$

June 23, 2006


Business of Saving Lives

The Safety Problem Is Global The Safety Solution Is Local and Personal


Plateau in Motor Vehicle Fatality Trend in U.S.

43,200

2005*

44,599

2.08

1.44

* NHTSA FARS; as of 5/2006


The Problem - Today

Highway deaths have remained relatively constant–

43,200 (2005) 42,636 (2004) and…

The fatality rate is unacceptably high: 1.44 deaths per 100 million VMT


The Problem – Tomorrow

  • 77 will be injured in a crash during their lifetimes…some more than once.

  • One will die violently in a highway crash during his/her lifetime.


The Cost

$230 Billion

Rick owes $ 820


Strategic

Planning and conducting a campaign on a broad scale.

“The BIG PICTURE”


A Strategic Highway Safety Plan …

  • Starts with the Planning Process.

  • Provides a comprehensive, coordinated, continuing, communicative, focused, and unified approach.


Mission

Vision

“To reduce deaths, injuries, and economic costs resulting from motor vehicle crashes.”

“Safest Drivers, Safest Roads.”

  • Speed

  • Traffic Records


Emphasis Areas

  • Run- Off-Road

  • Intersections

  • Pedestrians

  • Commercial Vehicles


Gateways to Information

  • Website for collecting and disseminating information on program development and effectiveness, and in-depth technical background; maintain currency of knowledge base.

  • Printed Guides for developing programs

Transportation Asset Management for Roadway Safety


The Connection ……

A strategic approach to managing transportation infrastructure

--- AASHTO Asset Management Guide


Why Asset Management for Roadway Safety is important

  • Safety is a top priority

  • Goal is to reduce highway fatalities and injuries

  • Important to construct, maintain, and operate safer transportation systems

  • Need to have data and facts of existing conditions and performance

  • Need to identify and set priorities

  • Roadway safety expenditures compete for limited DOT resources against other assets


Why

  • Leverage resources.

  • Additional funding sources.

  • Powerful funding request tool.

  • Make safety efforts more effective and efficient.

  • Make the task easier.

  • Support legislative initiatives.

  • Reduce fatalities and injuries.


It’s about Decision making...

...At every level

...Across disciplines

...With performance measures

...And feedback at all levels


Asset Management....

  • Expenditure of funds:

    • based on trade-off analysis, alternatives considered across functions and asset classes

    • driven by customer requirements

    • address a multitude of considerations

    • incorporate extended time horizons

    • systematic and data driven


In 2000, FHWA with AASHTO undertook a study to establish a baseline of current roadway safety hardware management practices, needs, and interest in enhancements.

Supporting Structures

Guardrails / Attenuators

Lighting

Pavement Markings

What is Safety Hardware

Management?

  • Inventory

  • Investment vs. Performance

  • Programmed Renewals

  • Legal Protections


What other states are doing.............

Minnesota

Georgia

Maryland

Virginia

California

New Mexico

Idaho


Why bother with an AMS Roadway Safety?

  • Improves resource allocation

  • Improves system reliability and performance

  • Improves decision making:

    • What performs best/which devices have the lowest long-term costs?
