    Transportation Safety in the National Parks
    The National Park Service (NPS) is committed to improving the safety record of its roadways and parkways. As part of its Safety Management System activities, the NPS recently completed a service wide analysis of motor vehicle crash data to determine the severity, type, and distribution of motor vehicle crashes. The patterns identified are helping NPS develop safety strategies that can be implemented to reduce the risk of future crashes. These safety enhancement can include such actions as constructing safety wedges (a 45 degree slope on the outside edge and centerline of the pavement) as part of resurfacing projects; enhancing pavement markings and warning signs; and installing rumble strips at appropriate locations.
