Road Safety Champion Program – Module 4 of 7 (Overview of the MUTCD)

August 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Florida LTAP Center is pleased to offer the Road Safety Champion Program (RSCP) 7-part webinar series. This is Part 4 of a 7-part series, entitled “Overview of the MUTCD”.

The RSCP is a nationally recognized certificate program designed to build a knowledgeable, safety minded workforce, responsible for operating, maintaining, and designing local roads. Road Safety Champions prioritize safety and are motivated to implement safety improvements that reduce fatalities and serious injuries on rural and local roadways. The RSCP is open to all staff from transportation, public health, and law enforcement agencies who have an interest in roadway safety but are not safety experts. Think of it as a “Roadway Safety 101” course.

This module is an introduction and overview of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). The MUTCD defines the standards by which traffic signs, road surface markings, and signals are designed, installed, and used on all public streets, highways, bikeways, and private roads open to public traffic. This module will help participants become aware of the need for uniformity of traffic control devices. Emphasis will be given to an understanding of the MUTCD, Traffic Control Devices, and Temporary Traffic Control. The goal of this module is for participants to understand the purpose of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), and how to use it.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the purpose and the organization of the MUTCD
  • Understand the purpose of Traffic Control Devices (TCDs) and identify their five principles
  • Describe the fundamental principles of Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) and list the four components of the TTC zones
