GUIDELINES FOR FLASHING TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICES

This report details the development of guidelines for the installation of certain classes of flashing traffic control devices. The devices studied were, continuous flashing and vehicle actuated two-way and four-way STOP intersection beacons, continuous and vehicle actuated advanced warning (STOP AHEAD) beacons and vehicle actuated beacons for speed limit control on curves. The guidelines are based upon the results of a state-of-the-art review, extensive field work, accident studies, and analytical investigations. They are presented in graphical form with a set of procedures for their use.
