Short Count Factoring Guide

Short Count Factoring Guide (PDF 3.4MB):    This guide provides a general overview of traffic counting programs, as well as a more detailed discussion of suggested practice in relation to short duration traffic count field and office techniques. The intent is to encourage high standards and uniform practices among local traffic counting programs within the State of Washington so that an accurate representation of traffic on our public roadways is available to all interested parties.  It is an informational guide only and does not constitute a specification or a statement of required practice.
