This course will review basic concepts in probability and statistics and their application in designing traffic control features and regulating traffic. The course will examine methodologies for conducting speed studies, evaluating intersection controls, safety analyses and quantifying the effectiveness of safety treatments. Procedures and required traffic studies to legally establish, revise and remove traffic restrictions in New Jersey will also be presented. Participants also complete exercises in which they conduct common engineering and traffic studies using actual data.
Intended audience: Individuals conducting engineering and traffic studies and those responsible for identifying safety problems and potential solutions including engineers, and street superintendents. Others that my benefit from this course are public works employees, and elected officials. This course is not geared towards law enforcement.
