The fundamental elements of traffic - the driver, the vehicle, and the roadway - are considered and then extended into studies of streams of traffic flow. Techniques of conducting traffic engineering studies, including methods of measuring speed, volume, and density, are covered along with methods for the determination of capacity on freeways and rural highways (uninterrupted flow facilities). Parking and accident studies are also included. Prerequisite: CE 3302; and CE 3301 or concurrent registration therein.
