Comments: - Study included three-yearbefore and after crash datafor each site.- In this case, the reported before-crashes represent the "expected crashes" after treatment.- "Traffic Control" includes intersections with yield control, two-way stop-control, all-way stop-control, and signal control.- Reported traffic volume is total entering volume.
