By Charles W. Niessner Staff Officer Transportation Research Board This report
contains guidelines that provide human factors principles and findings for
consideration by highway designers and traffic engineers. The guidelines allow
the nonexpert in human factors to more effectively consider the roadway user's
capabilities and limitations in the design and operation of highway facilities. The
TRB, AASHTO, and the FHWA have been working since 2001 on two projects
that together ...

While it is legally incumbent upon the driver to acquaint himself with the vagaries
and idiosyncrasies of the several jurisdictions he is driving in, this expectation is
inconsistent with the requirements of good human engineering. It would be more
consistent with a human factors approach to establish legal standards of traffic
movement and control rather than require drivers to acquire and retain
knowledge of arbitrary laws regarding traffic maneuvers. Uniformity of highway
signing style ...
