It has been shown that approximately one quarter of highway fatalities in the United States occur at or near horizontal curves. Contributing factors to these run-off-the-road crashes include excessive vehicle speed, distracted driving, and driver error. At some locations, the deterioration of pavement surface friction may also be a factor, particularly during wet weather.
An emphasis will be placed on pavement surface treatments termed High Friction Surfacing or HFS, which utilize alternative materials such small-sized polish and wear-resistant aggregates bonded to the pavement surface using proprietary resin binders.
High Friction Surfacing (HFS), also known as anti-skid surfaces, are pavement surface treatment systems that are composed of tough polish-resistant, abrasion-resistant aggregates bonded to the pavement surface using a resin.
