This publication contains information (referred to as course notes) designed mainly for one-week short courses on the fundamentals of traffic engineering, with a California audience in mind. The 12th edition includes new and updated material that may also be useful to the practicing traffic engineer. In particular, it reflects the publication of new editions of the "Highway Capacity Manual" and the "Policy on the Geometric Design on Highways and Streets," both of which occurred since the 11th Edition of these notes went to press. Several other chapters have been greatly revised. A new appendix, summarizing statistical methods commonly used in traffic engineering work, has been added. The appendix which translated certain data in past editions from British to metric units has been reduced to a single table of equivalents in view of the lack of progress in the United States in converting to the SI system of units. This reprint of the 12th Edition is identical to the original printing (January 1988) except for: correction of typographical and production errors; revision of Table 8-3; and correction through updating of obsolete information in the legal reference footnote on page 14-8, and in the last paragraph under D.3.b. of Chapter 22 (page 22-4).
