Ontario Traffic Manual - July, i Book 12 - Traffic Signals Foreword The purpose of the Ontario Traffic Manual (OTM) is to provide information and guidance for transportation practitioners and to promote uniformity of treatment in the design, application and operation of traffic control devices and systems across Ontario. The objective is.

      Warrant 2: Four-Hour Volume and Warrant 3: Peak Hour Volume. Both of these warrants address unusually high, short duration side street traffic volumes. Practitioners should take care when using these warrants. Many types of . significant impact for the AM peak hour in and Mitigation Measure TRAF-7B Modify the traffic signal to a three-phase operation to The findings demonstrate that peak hour signal warrants are met in all scenarios and select peak hours.

Generally, District 7 prefers that either Warrant 1 or Warrant 2 is met.

The installation of a traffic signal should be considered if one or more of the warrants in the referenced manuals are met.

Warrant #2: Four-hour Volumes. Traffic volumes for four hours fall above the threshold lines on the warrant chart. Traffic concentrated within a four-hour period justifies signal control.

Warrant #3-A: Peak-hour Delay. The side street traffic needs to wait too long on average during a one-hour period. Typical minimum thresholds. Warrant 3 - Peak Hour. The Peak Hour signal warrant is intended for use at a location where conditions are such that for a minimum of one hour of an average day, the minor-street traffic suffers undue delay when entering or crossing the major street.

Warrant 10 - Peak Hour Delay: For one hour of an average day, the minor street traffic suffers undue delay in entering or crossing the major street.

Warrant 11 - Peak Hour Volume: The peak hourly volumes on the major street and the minor street exceed specified values for any one hour of an average day. Edition Part 4 Figure 4C Warrant 3, Peak Hour (70% Factor) Figure 4C Warrant 3, Peak Hour (70% Factor) This figure shows a graph depicting numerical values for Warrant 2, Four-Hour Vehicular Volume with the percent factor if the posted or statutory speed limit or the 85th percentile speed on the major street exceeds 70 km/h (40 mph or if the intersection lies.

the design service traffic volume that should be used to determine the use of a traffic signal at suburban and fringe areas of towns and cities within the state. For example, the Design Hourly Volume (DHV) is sometimes used in the Peak Hour Warrant to justify the need for a traffic signal.

However, the DHV is defined as the 30th highest hourly. Traffic Signal Warrants Please note the traffic signal warrant criteria may be reduced to alternate values (where applicable) if the following applies “If the posted or statutory speed limit or the 85th-percentile speed on the major street exceeds 70.

TRAFFIC SIGNAL WARRANTS Practitioners perform engineering studies of planned signalized intersections to predict their immediate and future impacts. The basis of every engineering study concerning signals is the set of warrants found in the MUTCD.

The warrants are part of the basic principles in the MUTCD. Comparing the pedestrian volumes included in Warrant 4 with the vehicular volumes in other warrants reveals some interesting trends.

Warrant 2 considers minor road traffic volume for 4 hours, while Warrant 3 considers minor road traffic volume for the peak hour. Warrant 4, which uses pedestrian values, also includes peak hour and 4-hour cri- teria. 5 The warrant procedure effectively assigned priority points based on several factors: The relative effect from which the installation of a traffic signal is expected to have on the existing safety performance of the intersection (i.e., its ability to improve the traffic safety and reduce certain.the major street, Warrants 1, 2 and 3 may be based on the 70 percent values combined with engineering judgment and right-turn reduction factors.

Signal warrants for local projects using State or Federal funding shall be included in the above criteria. Therefore, warrants for new traffic signals were based on the % values, regardless of the. Traffic Signal controlled: 55 seconds/vehicle; A reasonable rule of thumb is that the peak hour traffic is 10% of the daily traffic, so the peak hour on the residential street shouldn’t have much more than vehicles per hour (combined going both directions).

Of course they might have zero cars per hour in the middle of the night.
