Updates to 'Q&A' guidance document to implement MASH 2016 issued
Additional responses to questions submitted to The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) regarding the testing of roadside safety hardware under the Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) 2016 were released Monday.
The updated "Q&A" document has been in development since May 2018 and states "information in this document, which is updated periodically, has been approved by AASHTO and FHWA for dissemination to the roadside safety hardware community."
The purpose of the document is to further clarify the intent of various sections of MASH, as well as to assist manufacturers, crash test laboratories, and transportation agencies in using the guidelines to develop and implement roadside safety devices.
