What Is Traffic Engineering?
The content of this page is taken almost verbatim from a booklet called ''Traffic Engineering: What? Why? How?'', published by the Arizona Highway Department (now the Arizona Department of Transportation, Intermodal Transportation Division) in the early 1970s.
Despite this information being over 20 years old and the innumerable technological innovations in the field, the basic principles of traffic engineering have not changed: achieving the safe, efficient, and convenient movement of people and goods using streets, roads and highways.
