## SPOT SPEED STUDIES

1. Tujuan
The main objectives of this lab are to conduct a spot speed study and develop a
cumulative speed distribution curve. The speed survey is to be conducted along a straight
section of road during off-peak hours.

2. Dasar Teori
Spot speed is the speed of the vehicle as it passed a fixed point along a section of the
roadway. Spot speed is determined by measuring the time required for a vehicle to
traverse a specified distance along a road. Spot Speed studies are conducted to draw the
speed distribution curve along a road section. Figure 1 shows the cumulative spot speed

## Figure 1 Example of Cumulative Spot Speed Distribution

In Figure 1, the vertical axis is the percentage of vehicles traveling at or below the posted
speed. In practice, the 85th percentile speed is used in recommending the posted speed to
either increase or decrease, based on several factors. The 50th percentile speed is an
alternative measure of the average speed of travel on the roadway. Thus, the spot speed
data when plotted on a graph indicates the speed characteristics of the roadway section
surveyed.

b. Travel Time (Second)

5. Prosedur
Basically, there are two methods by which spot speed can be recorded: manually and
automatically.
A. Manual Method
The most commonly used methods are the use of machine recorders, photographic
method and speed radar guns. However, without those fancy equipments, spot speed also
can be recorded manually. The method is explained on the following steps.
Step 1:
A straight section of the road is measured with tape measure. The length of the road
depends on the average speed of traffic at this section.

## Figure 2 Example Manual Method Spot Speed Study Layout

2
For this purpose, the observer needs to mark the start and end point of the section. The
recommended trap lengths for manual speed studies are as follows:

## Table 1 Recommended Trap Length

Average Speed of Traffic Recommended Trap Length
(Km/H) (meter)
< 40 25
40 - 65 50
> 65 75

Step 2:
When collecting the data, an observer starts and stops the stop watch as the vehicle
enters and departs the starting and ending points of the marked section.
Step 3:

## v 24 The observer should be in such a good position so that can

t (s) (km/h) see the upcoming vehicles clearly and can start and end the
