There are two types of traffic studies: traffic impact study and a traffic volume study. A traffic impact study analyzes the impact of traffic from a new development, business, or a new road to name a few examples. A traffic volume study analyzes the amount of traffic in a given area.Traffic volume studies are usually conducted to determine if there is a requirement for traffic calming.
A Traffic Study analyzes the traffic on a given road.It records the amount of traffic, average speed of traffic, the speed of most of the vehicles, and the speed of those vehicles that exceed the speed of most drivers.It is with this data that Traffic Calming may be implemented.
The only recorded data is for Traffic counts at intersections for a specified project. This data is stored in a *.mio file format.It is deleted at the completion of the project. For further details please see our Collection and Use of Traffic Video Data PolicyPDF.
