Are the requirements for crashworthiness posts to be changed with the proposed revision to the MUTCD?

No, since the provisions for crashworthiness were put forth in the 2000 MUTCD the implementation requirements will remain as January 2013 for roads with a speed limit of 50 mph or more.

For more information on crash worthiness post requirements please refer to the Quick Answer: “When do sign posts have to meet the new standards for crashworthiness ?
