Traffic Bowl

The 2010 ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl is a competition amongst ITE student chapters, similar to the TV game shows such as the College Bowl or Jeopardy, but with transportation planning and engineering topics for the clues, questions, and answers. This year’s competition is the inaugural event for ITE’s Collegiate Traffic Bowl.

Student teams from universities in the United States and Canada will compete in nine district-level events for a chance to compete in the Grand Championship at the ITE Annual Conference in St. Louis, MO August 13-16, 2011.

Sample clues

  • The MUTCD 2000 provides guidance that pedestrian clearance time should be based on this normal walking speed.  Response: What is 4.0 ft/s (1.2 m/s)?
  • The 2010 International ITE President. Response: Who is Paul Eng-Wong?

Competition Resources
The competition will involve clues and responses (questions and answers) from various transportation resources. The following current resources will be used:

Traffic Engineering Handbook, 6th edition
Transportation Planning Handbook, 3rd edition
USDOT Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, 2003 edition
Canadian Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices
Highway Capacity Manual 2000 and Canadian Capacity Guide
ITE Web site

In addition, there will be exciting potpourri categories that will feature clues about the ITE and its structure and governance and from “general transportation knowledge” as well as pop culture that are of course related somehow to transportation planning and engineering.
