Sight Distance Guidelines

Sight Distance (SD) Guidelines PDH online course is a part of the Civil and Transportation course category. In this course, we look into the essential principles and applications of SD guidelines crucial for safe and efficient roadway design. As traffic engineers, ensuring adequate SD is paramount to mitigate risks and enhance overall road safety.

Throughout this course, participants will gain a deep understanding of SD concepts, including stopping SD (SSD), passing SD (PSD), and decision SD (DSD). We will explore the theoretical foundations behind these guidelines and their practical implications in real-world engineering scenarios.

The course covers topics such as factors influencing SD, methodologies for SD calculations, and the role of geometric design in optimizing SD. Trainees will also learn about how speed influences SD and will be provided with list of references and resources for practical application of SD calculations.

This course can be used to satisfy both Professional Engineering as well as Traffic Engineering licesne continuing eductation requirements, as mandated by the Transportation Professional Certification Board.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • List key components of SD
  • Determine SSD
  • Calculate Intersection SD
  • Understand when to use DSD
  • Establish PSD
  • Understand influence of speed on SD
