TRAFFIC MARKINGS - A PROCEDURE FOR PUTTING TO USE RESEARCH FINDINGS

Today, movement of people and goods is being accomplished more by traffic engineering principles than by construction of new and expanded roadways. Control measures are far less expensive and do not adversely affect the environment. In the revised Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), traffic markings take on a new and more important role. With stabilized street systems it is important to consider markings of a more permanent nature than conventional traffic paint. From a cost effectiveness standpoint, thermoplastic material stands high above other materials. Justification for installing permanent markings is advanced. There is need for compiling an up to data inventory of traffic markings. A procedure for making and maintaining an inventory is presented. A method for setting up accounting ledgers for assuring adequate traffic markings on a continuing basis is offered. /FHWA/
