ACCURATE TRAVEL TIMES USING PORTABLE TAPE RECORDERS

This paper describes the development of a method for accurately recording the numberplates and times of passing of a high sample of vehicles in heavy flow situations using low-cost portable tape recorders. The method has been extensively tested and found to be better than existing methods in terms of timing accuracy, the sample size obtained and ease of transportation. A similar method has been developed for recording data from moving observer surveys, enabling the job to be carried out by only one observer with consequent savings in survey costs. (TRRL)
