What are Traffic Volumes?

Traffic volumes are taken from traffic counts. One of the most important pieces of information that is needed to study an intersection is traffic count data. Reviewing the count is a starting point to understanding how traffic ebbs and flows throughout the day. Counts typically occur manually or with automated count stations. From the count, engineers can see an estimate for the volume of traffic for that location. 

The City of Salinas traffic volumes depict Red as a high volume of traffic, two levels of Orange as medium volume of traffic and Yellow as low level of traffic.
