This report gives a country by country synopsis of traffic control systems in present practice for The Netherlands, Germany, and France. In addition a summary of detailed information about the following traffic control system centers: Amsterdam Freeway Control Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands; Centre National D'Information Routiere, Rosny-Sous-Bois, France; Cofiroute - Traffic Information Center, Paris, France; SIRIUS (Service Information for Roseau Intelligible User), Saint-Denis, France. In general, the basic goal for each system's control center is to gather and disseminate roadway information to the user. However, each system uses different methods of gathering the data and disseminating the information to the user. The four traffic control centers gave different perspectives on how to achieve this goal from national, local, and private company points of view. The author gathered the information as part of the IVHS Europe 1993 Study Tour.
