The objectives of NCHRP Project were to develop (1) design guidelines for safe and aesthetic roadside treatments in urban areas and (2) a toolbox of effective roadside treatments that can balance the safety and mobility of pedestrians, bicyclists, . Explores recommended design guidelines for safe and aesthetic roadside treatments in urban areas. The report also examines a toolbox of roadside treatments designed to balance pedestrian, bicyclist, and motorist safety and mobility.

  Transportation safety is a highly contentious issue in the design of cities and communities. While urban designers, architects, and planners often encourage the use of aesthetic streetscape treatments to enhance the liability of urban streets, conventional transportation safety practice regards roadside features such as street trees as fixed-object hazards and strongly . Safe Streets, Livable Streets. Urban planners, designers and architects often encourage the use of aesthetic streetscape treatments such as trees to enhance the livability of urban streets. However, conventional transportation safety practice regards these same roadside objects as fixed-object hazards and strongly discourages their use.   Safe and Aesthetic Design of Urban Roadside Treatments.

To understand better the design of safe roadsides in urban environments, this study used negative binomial regression models to examine the safety effects of three roadside design strategies.
