Paper Abstract

The traffic engineer responsible for the operation of completed streets, highways and freeways is the busiest man in any large highway organization. He daily faces more problems and more decisions than any other department head. Unfortunately, most of his decisions are based on a few facts, and a lot of intuition - sometimes referred to as experience. Photograpy, and particularly time-lapse photography, can provide more factual information and remove a lot of the intuition from his daily decision making.
