Fundamentals of Traffic Engineering serves as an introduction to the field of traffic engineering. Designed mainly for one-week short courses, it is also used increasingly in university engineering instruction. It includes standards, guidelines and references, including extensive links to government and professional resources.
In this 16th edition of the popular textbook, published in 2007, there is a chapter on Bicycle Characteristics and Facilities and a much-expanded chapter on Pedestrian Mobility. There is also a chapter on Work Zone Traffic Control.
