Since 1985, FHWA has emphasized a subset of the design criteria contained in adopted standards by designating them as the 13 controlling criteria: design speed, lane width, shoulder width, bridge width, horizontal alignment, superelevation, vertical alignment, grade, stopping sight distance, cross slope, vertical clearance, horizontal clearance, and structural capacity.
Another benefit of self-leveling is the decrease in the users' feeling of falling forward when going down a slope or the decrease in pressure on their torso when traveling on a cross slope.

Two of the criteria that developers often violate are maximum allowable running and cross slopes. The running slope is a measure of the slope parallel to the direction of circulation; the cross slope is measured perpendicular to the direction of circulation.
