Abstract:

Traffic control devices are all signs, signals, markings, and devices on, over, or adjacent to a street or highway by authority of a public body or official having jurisdiction to regulate, warn, or guide traffic. The need for uniform standards was recognized long ago. In 1927, AASHTO published a manual for rural roads and in 1929, the National Conference on Street and Highway Safety published a manual for urban streets. In 1935, a joint committee of AASHTO and NCSHS published the first edition of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. This manual sets forth the basic principles that govern the design and usage of traffic control devices. This manual presents traffic control device standards for all streets and highways open to public travel regardless of type or class or the governmental agency having jurisdiction.
