This syllabus serves as an introduction to the field of traffic engineering to professionals who are about to be assigned traffic engineering tasks, and as a source of recent information for those already in the field. It is designed mainly for one-week short courses, but past editions have also seen increasing use in university engineering courses and individual study. A new feature of this edition is the almost exclusive use of the International System of Units (metric system). The book is divided into 34 chapters, each of which fits into one of five major functional areas: studies of traffic characteristics; transportation planning; geometric design; traffic operations and control; and administration.
