of the Engineering Department is responsible for the engineering,
design, installation, and maintenance of all traffic control
devices, including signals, signage, and lane markings. Speed
limits are also established by this group, which conducts speed
studies in some cases to determine if a speed limit should be
changed. Various traffic studies are performed in the planning
of future roadway projects utilizing data that is collected and
maintained by the Department, including traffic counts and accident

vehicle, an emergency vehicle, or a road service vehicle that
is displaying the appropriate visual signals by means of flashing
, oscillating, or rotating lights, as prescribed in section 4513.17
of the Revised Code, shall do either of the following:
(1) If the driver
of the motor vehicle is traveling on a highway that consists
of at least two lanes that carry traffic in the same direction
of travel as that of the driver's motor vehicle, the driver shall
proceed with due caution and, if possible and with due regard
to the road, weather, and traffic conditions, shall change lanes
into a lane that is not adjacent to that of the stationary public
safety vehicle, an emergency vehicle, or a road service vehicle.
(2) If the driver
is not traveling on a highway of a type described in division
(A)(1) of this section, or if the driver is traveling on a highway
of that type but it is not possible to change lanes or if to
do so would be unsafe, the driver shall proceed with due caution,
reduce the speed of the motor vehicle, and maintain a safe speed
for the road, weather, and traffic conditions.

TWO VERY IMPORTANT
This many people lost their lives on our nation's roads in 2015,
a 7.2 percent increase over 2014. Those arent just numbers.
These were our children, parents, spouses, friends, neighbors,
and colleagues. They were somebodys everything.
94 - Thats the percentage
of crashes caused by human choice or error. Thats a fatal
decision to get behind the wheel after drinking. Its the
decision to speed through an intersection as a light is changing,
or the inability to brake fast enough to avoid the person who
just sped through. Its the decision to drive after a sleepless
night or to send one more text from behind the wheel to let someone
know youre on your way.

TRAFFIC SIGNAL RE-LAMPING RE-LAMPING
the Butler County Engineer's Office re-lamped signals at 17 intersections
with a total of 350 new LED lamps at an approximate cost of $10,000.
This was a continuation of the LED re-lamping program begun in
that received new LED lamps replaced the first round of LED lamps
installed in Butler County back in 2005. The first re-lamp equates
to eight years of use out of the LED traffic signal lamps. Prior
to installing the energy efficient LED lamps in traffic signal
heads, an annual blanket replacement of incandescent light bulbs
was required. Thus, Butler County has benefited from significant
savings in labor hours as well as 90 percent less energy consumption.
The new LED lamps
are purchased using the ODOT Cooperative Purchasing Program.
The ODOT Cooperative Purchasing Program permits political subdivisions
to purchase specified items at the best unit price available.

16 to 19 are four times more likely, than older drivers, to get

of total fatalities for the year. This increase in motorcycle
fatalities for the year picks up the overall increasing trend
over the last 13 years that saw a one-year decline in 2009 when
4,469 motorcyclists were killed. However, the greatest decrease
in the estimated number of injured people is among motorcyclists,
with an 8.9 percent decrease.
With respect to motorcyclist
fatalities, fatalities among motorcyclists 50 and older increased
by 119, whereas fatalities among motorcyclists under 50 declined
Per vehicle mile
traveled (VMT) in 2009, motorcyclists were 25 times more likely
than passenger vehicle occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic
crash and 5 times more likely to be injured.
In 2010, 42 percent
of fatally injured motorcycle riders and 51 percent of fatally
injured motorcycle passengers were not wearing helmets at the
time of the crash.

In fatal crashes
in 2010, a higher percentage of motorcycle riders had blood alcohol
concentrations (BAC) of .08 grams per deciliter (g/dL) or higher
than any other type of motor vehicle driver. The percentages
for operators involved in fatal crashes were 28 percent for motorcycles,
23 percent for passenger cars, 22 percent for light trucks, and
2 percent for large trucks.
of the 1,921 motorcycle riders who died in single-vehicle crashes
in 2010 had BAC levels of .08 g/dL or higher. Sixty-five percent
of those killed in single vehicle crashes on weekend nights had
BACs of .08 g/dL or higher.
In 2010, more than one-fifth of motorcycle riders (22%) involved
in fatal crashes were riding with invalid licenses at the time
of the collision.
NHTSA estimates that
helmets saved the lives of 1,483 motorcyclists in 2009. If all
motorcyclists had worn helmets, an additional 732 lives could
have been saved.
The economic cost
savings due to helmet use was approxi&SHY;mately $2.9 billion
in 2008, and an additional $1.3 billion could have been saved
if all motorcyclists had worn helmets.
According to the
National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS), the use of DOT-compliant
helmets decreased to 54 percent in 2010, from 67 percent in 2009.
Use of helmets that do not comply with the DOT standard increased
dramatically from 9 percent in 2009 to 14 percent in 2010.
Over the past decade,
the age group with the largest increase in motorcyclist fatalities
(from 1,261 in 2001 to 2,523 in 2010) was the 40-and-older age

are being planned.
alternative to typical at-grade intersections offers improved
safety while keeping traffic flowing at slower speeds through
the intersection. Some motorists may require a little tutoring
on just how roundabouts function and how to best use them. So
we've assembled a brochure that explains the benefits of a roundabout
and how to approach, yield, enter, and exit a roundabout.

of Butler County, I would like to commend you on the installation
of roundabouts for traffic flow at intersections. Having lived
in the United Kingdom and Europe where they are extensively used,
I find them safer and better assist the flow of traffic than
regular stop intersections...Keep up the good work." - Mark

"I first had
the privilege of using roundabouts in Hilton Head and I love
them. Thanks for constructing a few of them here. I have used
both the Hamilton Mason and the Lakota West roundabouts and they
are very smooth. The landscaping is coming along and should look

The Traffic Engineering
Manual (TEM) has been developed to assure uniformity in application
of ODOT (Ohio Department of Transportation) traffic engineering
policies, guidelines, standards, and practices. The OMUTCD establishes
the basic, minimum traffic control standards for all public roadways
in Ohio, and all supplemental ODOT traffic engineering design,
