    Traffic Counts

    What is it?

    • The counting of vehicular traffic on a particular road at specific times.
    • Often done by an electronic traffic counter, which usually consists of a cable that runs along the road which attaches to a box on the boulevard.
    • It can classify the types of vehicles using the road (cars, trucks, motorcycles, bikes).
    • It can measure the speed of traffic on that specific road.


    Why conduct traffic counts?

    • To identify which routes are most used.
    • To improve specific roads.
    • To provide alternative routes if there is an excessive amount of traffic.
    • To review speed limits.
    • To classify roads based on Ontario Minimum Maintenance Standards.
    • To plan and install effective signals, signs, and intersections.
