This study explores the statistical relationship between crash occurrence probability and longitudinal pavement marking retroreflectivity. Problem Statement Previous research on pavement markings, from a safety perspective, tackled various issues, such as pavement marking retroreflectivity variability, relationship between pavement marking retroreflectivity and driver visibility, and pavement marking improvements and safety. A recent research interest in this area is to find a correlation between retroreflectivity and crashes, as a significant statistical relationship is undefined to date.
