Stories from traffic:
BYU traffic engineers Grant Schultz and Mitsuru Saito are on a mission to stop people from making left turns on busy roads. It’s not because they want to make life more difficult; it’s because they want to save it.
Newly published research from BYU civil engineers finds that up to 25 percent of vehicles in Utah’s high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes during rush hour are violating carpool requirements.
When a car travelling relatively fast needs to come to an immediate stop, milliseconds matter. Sometimes only a few feet is the difference between life and death.
Led by civil engineering professor Grant Schultz, a BYU team has developed one of the country’s most advanced traffic safety models for the Utah Department of Transportation.
