Book Description

Traffic Engineering, 4e, is ideal for a one/two-semester undergraduate survey, and/or for graduate courses on Traffic Engineering, Highway Capacity Analysis, and Traffic Control and Operations.

This unique text focuses on the key engineering skills required to practice traffic engineering in a modern setting. It includes material on the latest standards and criteria of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (2003 Edition and forthcoming 2010 Edition), the Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets (2004 Edition), the Highway Capacity Manual (2000 Edition and forthcoming 2010 Edition), and other critical references. It also presents both fundamental theory and a broad range of applications to modern problems.

2This is a horribly organized book
By Josh
This is a horribly organized book. Other transportation engineering books I've used offer much better paragraph heading organization and more example problems. If you can, avoid this book.

3Good but has a ton of issues
By Matt
I have had this book for about three months now, its been a good book but recently as I have gotten further into it I am finding more and more mistakes in it. I have had problems where i use a table in the book and it says to interpolate and you can't even get the values they get in the example. Overall they need to check the math in the book and update the references they use many of them have been updated and not recently either.
