Description : It is commonly regarded that the overuse of traffic control devices desensitizes drivers and leads to disrespect, especially for low-volume secondary roads with limited enforcement. The maintenance of traffic signs is also a tort liability concern, exacerbated by unnecessary signs. The Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the Institute of Transportation Engineer's (ITE) Traffic Control Devices Handbook provide guidance for the implementation of STOP signs based on expected compliance with right-of-way rules, provision of through traffic flow, context (proximity to other controlled intersections), speed, sight distance, and crash history. The approach(es) to stop is left to engineering judgment and is usually dependent on traffic volume or functional class/continuity of system. Although presently being considered by the National Committee on Traffic Control Devices, traffic volume itself is not given as a criterion for implementation in the MUTCD. STOP signs have been installed at many locations for various reasons which no longer (or perhaps never) met engineering needs. If in fact the presence of STOP signs does not increase safety, removal should be considered. To date, however, no guidance exists for the removal of STOP signs at two-way stop-controlled intersections. The scope of this research is ultra-low-volume (

Description : The primary focus of the manual is on "how to conduct" transportation engineering studies in the field. Each chapter introduces the type of study and describes the methods of data collection, the types of equipment used, the personnel and level of training needed, the amount of data required, the procedures to follow, and the techniques available to reduce and analyze the data. Applications of the collected data or information are discussed only briefly. The focus is on planning the study, preparing for field data collection, executing the data collection plan, and reducing and analyzing of the data. Guidelines for both oral and written presentation of study results are offered.
