"The Traffic Study Manual represents a comprehensive introduction to traffic studies, that includes some meaningful lessons learned that could help save early career transportation engineers time and confusion. " - David Hurwitz, Ph.D.
Assistant Civil Engineering
Professor, Oregon State Univeristy
"Overall I found the Traffic Study Manual to be a pretty clear and concise document that provided the user with easy to follow instructions and outlines to prepare a TIS." - Matt Brown, PE, PTOE
Vice-President, A&F Engineering
"The Traffic Study Manual is well written and has some great tips that I wish someone had shared with me when I was a young engineer. The authors do a great job of adding anecdotal stories to illustrate the points they are making. I’d recommend this to any engineer hired to write traffic impact studies, especially young engineers at consulting firms that do a lot of traffic impact study work for private developer clients. " - Nick Erpelidng, PE, PTOE
Traffic Engineer
"A fresh look at preparing impact studies is timely and welcome. What I especially like is the commentary side of this piece; anecdotal references and stories that make up the fabric of heuristics in traffic engineering. Other manuals have never provided that color." - Mark Lenters, PE
Service Group Manager, GHD Inc.
"I found the Traffic Counting Manual to be comprehensive and informative. It is a good one-stop-shop for a good understanding of the different traffic surveying techniques. I’ve shared the document with my colleagues who work on those studies on a more day-to-day basis." - William Hu
Engineer, Translink
