This paper focuses on the detailed analysis of specific highway locations that have been identified as hazardous in the framework of a State Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). The paper presents a microcomputer-based, prototype expert system which performs location analysis. The prototype system will be used to test the feasibility of building usable microcomputer based expert systems for this application, and to make recommendations for the design and implementation of such systems. By automating these activities on low cost, easy-to-use computer technology, it is hoped that the effectiveness of state highway transportation agency operations will be enhanced. By providing consistent and comprehensive analysis procedures, the overall safety and efficiency of our highway network will improve.
