Why Traffic Management Is Important

The invention of the automobile made land travel faster and easier. The next step was to make it more organized and efficient, a task that is never completed. Traffic management is the arrangement, control, guidance, and organization of motorized and non-motorized vehicles on the road; those that are stationary as well as those that are moving, as well as pedestrians. Traffic laws and signals bring order to the roads and thus can be seen as the primary rudiments of traffic management. However, traffic management is generally understood as handling traffic flow and volume throughout the day.
