Welcome to MUTCD Resources for Practitioners and Attorneys!

The Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) establishes basic criteria for the use of traffic control devices on public roads and private roads open to public travel.  The MUTCD is defined as the national standard for traffic control devices in the Code of Federal Regulations and each state adopts some form of the MUTCD for use in the state.  The menu at the top of this page provides links to help practitioners effectively use the MUTCD in the design, selection, placement and operation of traffic control devices and to help attorneys understand the role of the MUTCD within the legal arena.  This site also provides extensive documentation on the history of the MUTCD.
