2007 National Traffic Signal Report Card Shows Improvements Made, But Much Work Still Needed

D Grade Means Headaches for Commuters; Improved Operation of Traffic Signals Could Lower Fuel Consumption Nationwide

The National Transportation Operations Coalition (NTOC) is pleased to announce that the national press event to unveil the results of the 2007 National Traffic Signal Report Card, held this morning at Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC, was a great success!

NTOC is an organization comprising transportation experts including the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the American Public Works Association (APWA), the International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA), ITS America, U.S. DOT–Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and many other organizations.

2007 Report Card Grades

The report card shows how local jurisdictions such as cities, counties and states can reap large rewards, such as mitigating congestion and lessening fuel consumption, by making small changes in the way they manage and operate their traffic signal systems. The report also highlights several jurisdictions that have been successful in making changes since the 2005 report card was released.

The results contained in the report card are based on the 2007 Traffic Signal Operation Self Assessment released by NTOC in the fall of 2006. A total of 417 agencies responded, representing 47 states.
