Intersection Safety Technologies Guidebook: Intersection Conflict Warning Systems & LED STOP Signs

This Guidebook contains information that should be useful to engineers as they consider alternative solutions to traffic safety concerns at side-street STOP controlled intersections. It is the intent of this guide to provide the engineer information to aid in the consideration, selection and deployment of light-emitting diode (LED) STOP signs and Intersection Conflict Warning Systems (ICWS) at these intersections. These safety strategies should be included for consideration along with other safety improvements detailed in the Traffic Engineering Manual (TEM) and Traffic Safety Fundamentals Handbook such as improving visibility of the intersection with improved signing, pavement marking, and intersection lighting; improving sight distance by providing clear sight triangles on all approaches; selecting appropriate traffic control such as ALL WAY STOP; and reducing conflict points through geometric design such as turn lanes or bypass lanes.
