This article focuses on a paper presented at the Transportation Research Board 1992 annual meeting: Evaluation of Variable Message Signs: Target Value, Legibility and Viewing Comfort. The variable message sign (VMS) technology study is expected to be useful to those planning and designing freeway management systems and other applications. The procedures are described in a study of four fiberoptic signs and two LED signs installed on a Phoenix, Arizona urban freeway system. Observations relating to target value, legibility distance, and viewing comfort are tabulated and analyzed. Conclusions drawn from the study are listed.
