An operational method for the field evaluation of highway guide signs that is readily applicable by traffic engineers or researchers was developed on the basis of valid measures of effectiveness (MOEs) and sensitive, off-the-shelf data-collection techniques. It consists of measuring (with time lapse photographs and stopwatches) the decrease in such high risk maneuvers as crossing traffic lanes and gores to get into the deceleration lanes and driving too slow after installation of new guide signing.
