Best Practice Guidelines for the Design and Application of Transverse Rumble Strips

Drivers are informed of changes in their driving environment through numerous visual warnings by way of traffic signs, signals, and vehicles ahead of them. Transverse Rumble Strips (TRS) are unique as they communicate to drivers' kinesthetic (movement) and auditory senses. The TRS design parameters and elements described in this guide incorporate the findings of extensive reviews of research and practices and are based on the operating speed of the roadway and decision sight distances as interpreted from the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Geometric Design Guide for Canadian Roads.
