Creation of an effective traffic signal maintenance program requires gathering and analyzing a large amount of data on existing conditions and on the history of maintenance activities. A model has been developed that allows the testing of various maintenance strategies based on historical data from the system being simulated. The computer program, adaptable to almost any computer, does not require user expertise in programming. Its outputs include summary reports, which are an excellent basis for management control and planning. Labor and budget requirements for achieving various levels of accident reduction can be calculated. The model is a valuable tool both for program budgeting and for short- and long-range planning.
