Very Practical

This book presents things in a practical manner. The examples in the book are incredible and can very easily be related to real life applications.

Probably the best traffic engineering textbook out there

From sight distance to freeway flow characteristics to signal coordination for arterials, this is the most comprehensive textbook I've seen on traffic engineering. The topics follow a very logical progression and many examples are given throughout. This book could serve as an excellent textbook for an undergraduate or first-year graduate traffic engineering class in addition to being a must have for practitioners. One way the book could be improved is by including a more thorough presentation of loop detectors, control cabinets, and how actuated signal timing plans actually play out from cycle to cycle, specifically with regards to actuated coordinated signals along arterials. Nonetheless, I still give the book a 5.

Great book that covers almost everything

It is a great book, the only drawback is the following: it NOT written in Metric units (a.k.a. International System). I hope that the next edition use metric units.

Practical and Direct

This book goes thru a variety of traffic engineering problems, assesing solutions and explaining in an simple way many concepts and technics used in the HCM (1994/97 updates).Very good for begginers.....
