The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, or MUTCD, defines the standards used by road managers nationwide to install and maintain traffic control devices on all streets and highways. The Manual is important as it provides national traffic control standards for all public roads, and includes traffic signals, signs, roadway stencils, pedestrian crossings, and bicycle and pedestrian treatments. The Highway Design Handbook for Older Drivers and Pedestrians, being updated this year, is provided leading research information which may, as verified and tested, become standards in the MUTCD in future years. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Helvetica}

Diese interdisziplinäre Arbeit bietet eine empirische Standortbestimmung zur Gestaltung und Verwendung von Piktogrammen aus kommunikationswissenschaftlicher Perspektive. Ausgehend von den Ursachen, die einen kontinuierlichen Wandel von grafischen Symbolen bedingen, analysiert der Autor ein Aufkommen von Merkmalen der nonverbalen Kommunikation, die mit dem Neutralitätsanspruch internationaler Standards brechen. Ihren vielfältigsten Ausdruck findet eine solche Emotionalisierung von Piktogrammen, die bis hin zu einer mal mehr, mal weniger anthropomorphen Personifizierung reicht, in den japanischen Characters. Zentral sind ihr Aufmerksamkeitswert, die Motivation zur Befolgung der angezeigten Regeln durch eine emotionale Ansprache, Imagebildung und Identitätsstiftung sowie die Orientierung auf eine spezifische Zielgruppe hin, wie etwa Kinder.

More than 40,000 people are killed on our highways each year, and millions more are injured. Bad drivers and bad vehicles alone do not account for this carnage. The highway itself is often a contributing -- even determining -- cause of accidents. Killer Roads provides comprehensive guidance on the many issues surrounding transportation facility negligence. It helps you pinpoint essential engineering issues and relevant road defects, assess the quality of maintenance, identify pertinent engineering standards, and understand the liability of all parties. However, Killer Roads goes beyond describing the legal basis for your courtroom strategy. It also provides helpful, hands-on guidance for implementing this strategy successfully. Written in straightforward language, Killer Roads demonstrates how highway liability issues impact your approach to jury selection, the opening statement, cross-examination, and expert witness testimony.
