NATIONAL TRAFFIC SIGNAL SAFETY RESEARCH PROGRAM
The paper discusses the Optically programmed Signal Efficiency Evaluation (OPSEE) research program and implementation throughout the country. The OPSEE program was initiated to provide a controlled environment for measuring the impact of installing optically programmed signals. The report compares and summarizes the before and after data collected at a National Field Laboratory of signalized intersections. The before and after data concerned intersection characteristics, vehicle and pedestrian volumes, erratic driver and pedestrian behavior, and accident records.
