New Guidelines for Traffic Signals

In 2010 the FGSV (German Road and Transportation Research Association) published a new edition of the Guidelines for Traffic Signals (RiLSA). The guidelines are very technical and not easy for the layman to read. In addition, they do have some shortcomings in terms of road safety. The UDV (German Insurers Accident Research) therefore published a brochure in 2011 that highlights what is new in the guidelines but also indicates how road safety can be improved. This brochure complements the recommendations on the road safety of traffic signals (Empfehlungen zur Verkehrssicherheit von Lichtsignalanlagen) published in 2002.
