      The Highway Safety Manual User Guide is a user friendly document that helps safety analysts begin to use the Highway Safety Manual (HSM). The Highway Safety Manual User Guide is a companion document to the HSM and is used as a reference document. It is not a substitution for the HSM or a design guideline for safety projects. These Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are based on the knowledge and experience of the developers and practitioners of the Highway Safety Manual, as well as various publications and websites, including the Highway Safety Manual discussion forum, the Federal Highway Administration’s Crash Modification Factor Clearinghouse, and more.
