The data collection procedure is described, the results are summarized, and recommendations are presented which were the results of a project to compare traffic engineering operations with appropriate safety standards and to develop corrective actions. A comprehensive questionnaire survey was made to provide qualitative and quantitative measurements of current traffic engineering information regarding organization, administration, personnel and operations, maintenance, budget and community emphasis. A community survey was also made. The survey revealed a lack of conformance to highway safety standards which may be typical of a majority of small urban communities that, because of their size or budgetary constraints, do not employ a qualified traffic engineer or technician to handle day-to-day activities. Effort must be made at the county level or higher to aid agencies responsible for traffic operations. The survey instrument developed in this study can be used by other communities.
