This unique book provides comprehensive and in-depth coverage of traffic engineering. It reflects all the skills necessary for success; including design, construction, operation, maintenance, and system optimization. Using a clear and logical structure, the book demonstrates both the theory and methodology behind all standard traffic engineering approaches. It also includes examples to illustrate the procedures as they are used in practice. The second edition of Traffic Engineering has been revised to include a new chapter on the statistical analysis of data. It also includes the latest practices and procedures; new material on underlying models; a new procedure for initial signal timing; as well as an expanded presentation of signalization and signal analysis. An essential reference book for practicing traffic engineers.
