Below is our price list at Traffic Data Inc. I know these prices will seem really expensive in some regions and really cheap in others. The traffic counting business seems to be pretty localized.
You’ll notice we don’t charge a straight rate for each hour for turning movement counts. We price our turning movement counts to incentivize moving away from the 2 hour peak period turning movement count.
You’ll also notice a 48 hour turning movement count at a stop sign controlled intersection costs the same as getting 2 hour a.m. and p.m peak period counts plus tube counts on the four approaches. So if you’re doing a traffic signal warrant analysis at a stop sign controlled intersection, you should go with the turning movement count (you can actually save money and just go with a 13 hour turning movement count). The turning movement count allows you to actually factor right turns instead of making estimates for factoring them down.
