The Local Road Safety Plan (LSRP) identifies emphasis areas throughout Union City and evaluates safety countermeasures that can be implemented to address issues in the city’s transportation network. These emphasis areas include collision data on the location of the crash, type of crash, and the notable relationships between crash history and current efforts to reduce collisions. The LRSP analyzes crash data on an aggregate basis as well as at specific locations to identify high-crash locations, high-risk locations, and city-wide trends and patterns.
