Safety Evaluation of the Safety Edge Treatment
Appendix C. Scatter Plots of Accidents and AADT
Figure 12 through figure 16 are scatter plots of crashes (per mile per year) and traffic volume (log basis) that were used to determine the appropriateness of modeling assumptions. In general, these plots show a positive relationship between crashes and traffic volume (i.e., crashes increase with increasing volume). Also, distributions for comparison, treatment, and reference sites appropriately overlap each other and do not contain extreme outliers.
