While many variables influence slip and skid resistance, interlocking concrete pavements offer surface characteristics that provide resistance and added safety when compared to other pavement surfaces.

• Highway Safety Act of “ Each State shall have a highway safety program designed to reduce traffic accidents and deaths, injuries, and property damage surveillance of traffic for detection and correction of high or potentially high accident locations ” • NCHRP report 37 “Tentative Skid Resistance Requirements “.

Skid resistance is the force developed when a tire that is prevented from rotating slides on a pavement surface (Highway Research Board, ). Skid resistance is an important pavement safety evaluation parameter because poor skid resistance can lead to skidding accidents and inadequate braking distance during emergency by: management of skid resistance.

The main changes are outlined below: • Providing more detailed guidance for managing skid resistance on the State Highway Network.

• Providing more formalised responsibility for all skid resistance practitioners. • Updating and including Curve Risk Analysis within the specification for rural curves.

and Meyer, "Tentative Skid Resistance Requirements for Main Rural Highways," NCHRP. Abstract. Pavement markings are the most widely used road traffic control device.

However, such markings have a finite lifespan due to normal wear and tear of the road. They must be eventually removed and subsequently replaced.

During highway construction, the use and subsequent removal of temporary pavement markings are common : Ralph D.
