and ensure that design guidelines and laws and policies governing road and trail
intersections fully provide for the safety of this increasingly prevalent type of traffic

and management of intersections between trails and roadways, gather feedback on road and
trail intersection crashes and complaints, raise public awareness of the issue of road and
trail intersection safety, and offer policy and design recommendations that will improve the
safety of road and trail intersections.
