This monograph discusses the importance and use of traffic controls to maintain an orderly movement of traffic through intersections in urban areas circa 1951. The focus is on vehicle-vehicle and vehicle-pedestrian conflicts in intersections and how they affect traffic and pedestrian safety and traffic congestion and delays. The material is sub-divided into 2 sections: a report on a study of current practices in controlling turns; and a study of vehicle-pedestrian conflicts wherein empirical data were analyzed in terms of conflicts on the operating efficiency of intersections. A range of statistical field data is presented in graphical and tabular form.
