The evolution of roadbuilding has occurred because of the need to move people and goods economically and safely between their points of origin and destination. Engineers over the decades have built roads to meet these needs with varying degrees of success. One major goal throughout this period has been that of providing all-weather, skid-safe travel for the motoring public.
In providing skid-safe travel, the highway engineer has first resorted to studying the task and then developing solutions. This paper presents the present state of knowledge regarding the influence of highway geometrics and pavement surface on skid resistance. It summarizes the techniques of building a pavement initially for skid resistance and also corrective measures for existing pavements.
