Why the FHWA is making ATSPMs a priority

ATSPMs present a significant opportunity for cities to reduce congestion and costs, while improving traffic flow

Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPMs) are a hot topic for transportation professionals in 2017. So much so, that the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has made ATSPMs a priority for Every Day Counts (EDC-4) this year. Why? Because, as the FHWA puts it, ATSPMs modernize traffic signal management. And, they can dramatically improve safety and efficiency while cutting down on congestion and cost.
