In this webinar, our instructor will teach you to look at what Crash Modification Factors are, where to find them, and how to properly use them.  He will also show you some CMFs based on Florida’s data. We will look at common mistakes that people make when using CMFs and how you can avoid them to get the best answer for your safety analysis.

Attendees will learn that there are two different types of Crash Modification Factors in the Highway Safety Manual (HSM), and will learn the difference between a CMF and a CRF. And finally, attendees will learn how to find and choose the best CMF for analysis.
