Project SAVeRS (Selection of Appropriate Vehicle Restraint Systems) aims at reducing the severity of “run-off-road” (ROR) crashes. Besides constructing so called “forgiving roadsides”, an operator of the road network must also know what appropriate vehicle restraint systems (VRS) should be selected for certain traffic conditions and identify the location where to install these systems.
Expected end result of the project is a practical and readily understandable VRS guidance document and a user-friendly web-based tool that will allow the operator to select the most appropriate solution in different road and traffic configurations for all types of VRS.
