TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) has issued a request for proposals to prepare a proposed Human Factors Guidelines for Road Systems, Fourth Edition (HFG4), which can be used to by state DOTs and other transportation agencies to integrate human factors principles into design and operations across roadway systems for all road users. For this research, road users may include drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and electric scooter users. This publication will supplement the AASHTO Highway Safety Manual and provide further updates to NCHRP Report 600: Human Factors Guidelines for Road Systems, Second Edition using the safe systems approach. Proposals are due November 24, 2020 at 5:00 PM Eastern.
