Summary: This paper explains the fundamental importance of institutional development and the need for institutional self-sufficiency in order to obtain the objectives of traffic management. In addition to suggesting a suitable institutional framework for traffic management, the paper describes procedures with which to examine agency responsibilities and performance. It also provides guidelines for the establishment and the operation of a traffic management unit, for effective enforcement procedures and for accident data collection. The paper asserts the need to separate policy-making from technical responsibilities and to create effective modes of communication among the various groups that assume them. The mix and emphasis given to various institutional measures should be tailored to suit national and local needs and conditions.
