TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS SAVE ENERGY

Gasoline shortages may be bringing into prominence at least one positive method of saving gas and materially reducing air pollution emissions. This is the installation of electronically activated traffic control systems for the purpose of relieving traffic congestion, increasing the miles-per-hour average on heavily traveled roadways and decreasing the number of traffic light stops. The article reports on a survey of a number of computerized installations by different suppliers in the industry which now has more than a dozen active leaders. It also includes information on studies conducted under grants from the Federal Highway Adminstration, Department of Transportation.
