*Product shall be accepted by the FHWA as meeting or exceeding MASH or NCHRP 350 Test Level 3 (TL-3) requirements. Installer shall assume all responsibility for proper application and adherence to the manufacturer's installation instructions.MnDOT concurs with the FHWA Office of Safety consideration that a 62 mph crash test is representative of worst-case run-off-road crashes.  With respect to design speed, highway crash cushions tested to, and accepted as passing MASH or NCHRP 350 TL-3, are sufficient for a 70 mph design speed.
