Comments: This CMF is for crashes on horizontal curves. For situations where the existing (prior) condition is not an 8 ft shoulder width, calculate CMFs separately for the existing condition and the proposed condition and then divide the proposed condition CMF by the existing condition CMF to arrive at the final CMF.
