IT WAS FOUND THAT LANE VOLUMES, WEAVING MANEUVERS, CLASSIFICATION COUNTS, TURNING MOVEMENTS, LOAD FACTORS FOR SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS, AND ERRATIC MANEUVERS COULD BE COUNTED IN THE TIME-LAPSE MODE AND THAT, FOR THE LOCATIONS IN THIS STUDY, THIS DATA COULD BE EXTRACTED FOR ANALYSIS IN APPROXIMATELY ONE-HALF THE TIME REQUIRED BY CONVENTIONAL METHODS.
