Webinar: Real world safety: The benefits of using crash modification factors to predict and prioritize

December 8, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm


Join transportation engineers, designers and planners from across the country to learn how to use the most recent updates to the Federal Highway Administration’s CMF Clearinghouse, how to use CMFs in crash prediction models, and how two states are using CMFs in their project planning!

  • Daniel Carter, manager of the CMF Clearinghouse, will begin with current and upcoming features of the Clearinghouse, demonstrate a search using filters, and discuss how star quality ratings are given.
  • Frank Gross, highway safety engineer at Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc., will discuss how CMFs are used in crash prediction models, with special focus on the Highway Safety Manual.
  • Stephen Read, safety engineer with Virginia DOT, will present on CMF development and application issues, specifically how Virginia DOT develops and uses planning level CMFs.
  • Michael McNeill, safety engineer with Ohio DOT, will discuss how Ohio DOT uses CMFs in project prioritization.

Do you have questions about applying CMFs? Be sure to stay for the end of the session for a brief Q&A session!


Continuing education: Attendees will be eligible to receive a certificate of completion for 1.5 hours that can be applied toward Professional Development Hours (PDH) credit, per State requirements. This event will also be submitted for American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) credits.
