Abstract This 5 Percent Report provides an overview of the intersections, sections, and bicycle/pedestrian intersections identified as potentially hazardous by our Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). The North Carolina Crash Data System allows us to clearly identify specific locations with severe but correctable crash patterns. The screening process includes all public roads within our state. In May 2012, the higher ranked locations were listed in the 2012 North Carolina Highway Safety Improvement Program report, a listing of potentially hazardous (PH) locations. The listing of Potentially Hazardous locations covers from 5 to 10 percent of the locations within the state. These locations were flagged for exhibiting the most severe safety needs because these locations showed the strongest pattern of severe and correctable crashes. The criteria used to identify our PH locations are outlined in Appendices A through C. The Potentially Hazardous locations are ranked by location type. The ranking criteria include crash severity, crash frequency, target crash percentage and crash density.
