|Abstract:||Climate changes are very important for traffic safety in both developed and developing countries. Traffic safety has adversely been affected in areas with a high incidence of snow, ice and serious traffic accidents have taken place. In order to prevent these accidents in Turkey, General Directorate of Highways and local municipalities use conventional and modern methods to reduce snow and ice effect. Some of the conventional methods are temporary solutions and damage on both road surface and environment. Modern methods also have application difficulties. Nowadays, different methods have been developed to prevent snow and ice on highways. The newest of these methods are detecting and preventing icing system. In this study, the conventional and developing modern methods were compared in the cities which are included in the task area of 12th Regional Directorate of Highways and were under the heavy effect of snow and icing.
