White Papers

White papers typically present background information to help you understand specific issues in traffic control and traffic incident management. Some white papers explain an organization’s or individual’s position on a particular issue and provide facts to support that position in a reasoned argument. Other white papers propose a solution to a problem and explain how that solution was devised.
