The New York City Dept of Transportation employed a private firm to study the traffic conditions in a 14-square mile area comprised of the northern communities of Brooklyn. The goal of the investigation was to determine the locations where there are severe traffic problems amenable to small-scale capital improvements. The problem ranking approach was applied in the North Brooklyn analysis. The process employs accidents and delay measure to evaluates the severity of problems at each location. The method also flexibly accommodate weighting factors of various types of model significance of the problem.
