Abstract: The papers included in this publication focus on the current state-of-the-art of highway safety and the civil engineer's role in confronting and solving highway safety problems. Critical issues of highway safety are identified by: (1) Identifying the best and most successful highway safety programs currently being implemented; (2) indicating the available resources and identifying the related organizations providing program management; and (3) providing information regarding the latest technological developments. The complexities of highway traffic accidents are explored and engineering solutions sought. The six main areas covered are: (1) The new federation - its impact on highway safety; (2) the engineered factors in highway safety; (3) the engineer as an expert witness; (4) making safety work; (5) safer roads - an effective investment; and (6) the responsibility of the civil engineer in highway safety.
