The Traffic Safety Demonstration Program Modeling System (DEMON) is an interactive computer model for use in the analysis of individual NHTSA demonstration projects. This volume describes the Citizens Band (CB) radio model, designed to measure the role of CB units in a Highway Patrol emergency response system. A mathematical simulation, the model is used to describe the geography, dynamics, and emergency response situations (e.g., accidents, road hazards and speeders) for a given set of assumed conditions. The model can measure changes in the detection, notification and response times of a system, as conditions are allowed to vary. It evaluates the activities on the highway and compares the emergency response times for when the Highway Patrol is assumed to have a CB communication system and when it does not, i.e., under experimental and control situations.
