REVIEW OF THE SELECTIVE RESPONSE POLICY FOR TRAFFIC SIGNAL MAINTENANCE

Implementation of the Selective Response Policy for Traffic Signal Malfunctions generated considerable concern from the regions. Based on these concerns, the Safety Operations Unit investigated the operation of the policy to determine its effectiveness and what policy improvements might be needed. Through this investigative effort, areas were examined as briefly described below. Fifteen states with similar geographic and traffic characteristics were surveyed to determine what signal maintenance response policies are in current use. The regions were surveyed to determine their overall opinion of how well the policy is functioning, whether they are experiencing any problems and what improvements might be needed. A review of regional practices for choosing the response classification was used to develop criteria or suggested guidelines for a uniform classification.
