SEVEN EXPERIMENT DESIGNS ADDRESSING PROBLEMS OF SAFETY AND CAPACITY ON TWO-LANE RURAL HIGHWAYS. VOLUME V: EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN FOR VEHICLE EQUIVALENCY AND CAPACITY INCLUDING EFFECTS OF COMMERCIAL AND RECREATIONAL VEHICLES ON RURAL NON-CONTROLLED ACCESS HIGHWAYS
The objective of the experiment is to establish the influence of various types of trucks, buses and recreational vehicles on traffic flow on rural non-controlled access highways. This influence is due primarily to the low speeds which are common for these types of vehicles, particularly when negotiating grades.
