Bryant Ficek and I have put together a Manual on how to prepare traffic studies. It’s an 80 page eBook that goes through the detailed steps to prepare a traffic study, including checklists and war stories from our careers. As a bonus, we’re also including guides for preparing proposals and managing the traffic study process.
We hope the Manual accomplishes two goals:
- Shortens the learning curve for folks new to preparing traffic studies.
- Helps traffic engineering managers standardize their process.
We’re going to be charging $50 for the Traffic Study Manual once we go live, but I’m looking for twenty “beta testers/reviewers” to spend the time to go through it and give us their thoughts by November 15th. (UPDATE – More than 100 people have already signed up for beta testing and I’m not taking on any more volunteers. We’ll be selling Traffic Study Manual Version 1.1 at the end of November and I’ll be posing discounted pricing on MikeOnTraffic – please check back!) Of course, I’ll send you the eBook for free. In exchange, I’ll want you to answer:
- How did the eBook deliver on it’s promises?
- Who would you recommend this to and why?
- What would you change or recommend we add to the eBook?
If appropriate, I hope you’d allow me to use your name/responses (and maybe a photo) in marketing and promotional materials. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in being a reviewer. I may be slammed with emails, so I might not get back to you until early next week – thanks in advance for your patience.
