SEASONAL DISTRIBUTION OF TRAFFIC

THE RESULTS ARE DISCUSSED OF 12 YEARS OF TRAFFIC COUNTS IN MARYLAND. ATTENTION IS CALLED TO THE GREATLY INCREASED USE OF ROADS DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER AND IT IS CONCLUDED THAT HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS ARE JUSTIFIED IN EMPLOYING EVERY PRACTICAL MEANS FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF ROAD SURFACES DURING BAD WEATHER. WITH THE CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT OF VEHICLES AND ROAD SURFACES, IT MAY BE EXPECTED THAT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE USE OF ROADS IN GOOD AND BAD WEATHER WILL CONTINUE TO DECREASE.
