Traffic engineers, also known as transportation engineers, are a branch of civil engineers who study factors that influence traffic conditions on roads and streets, including street lighting, visibility, and location of signs and signals, entrances and exits, and the presence of sites such as factories or shopping malls. They use this information to design and implement plans and electronic systems that improve the flow of traffic. Traffic engineers are often assisted in their work by traffic technicians.
