Countermeasures That Work: A Highway Safety Countermeasure Guide for State Highway Safety Offices is a basic reference to assist State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) in selecting effective, evidence-based countermeasures for ten traffic safety problem areas: Alcohol- and Drug-Impaired Driving; Seat Belts and Child Restraints; Speeding and Speed Management; Distracted Driving; Motorcycle Safety; Young Drivers; Older Drivers; Pedestrians; Bicycles; and Drowsy Driving.

The guide describes major strategies and countermeasures that are relevant to SHSOs; summarizes strategy/countermeasure use, effectiveness, costs, and implementation time; and provides references to the most important research summaries and individual studies.

All chapters have been revised and updated for this edition. Information and research studies through May 31, 2018, have been reviewed and included as appropriate. Data has been updated to include information from 2018 FARS (Fatality Analysis Reporting System).
