Innovative traffic control: Technology and practice in Europe - executive summary Academic Article uri icon


  • In May 1998, a team of US traffic engineers traveled to Europe to observe innovative traffic control practices. They identified many noteworthy practices, several of which may have current or future value to US transportation agencies. The practices can be implemented with little or no changes in current US practices or standards. The implementation of the various traffic control practices will ensure that citizens receive the maximum benefit of innovative traffic controls to save lives, enhance operational efficiency and improve the movement of traffic in the US.
