WTS (Advancing Women in Transportation) & JMTE are offering a presentation that provides a quick overview of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices including regulatory signs, warning signs, guide signs, pavement markings, traffic signals, work zone safety, traffic calming, bicycle facilities, wayfinding, and railroad crossings. This course will explain how to understand and follow the Manual and explain the legal backing behind the MUTCD and the consequences of not using it.
 
We will unpack several real-life litigation cases from the Southeastern United States cases involving non-compliant MUTCD usage. Forensic findings, discoveries, and production requests for both plaintiff and defendant will be discussed as will the arguments from both sides of the cases. Participants will be provided information on what forensic engineers look for when researching MUTCD related cases to help reduce their exposure to litigation and what to do in the event of a lawsuit.
 
This presentation does not provide legal advice and no attorneys will be presenting.

As one of the sponsors of the STEM Camp Scholarship program, JMTE congratulates the three 2021 scholarship winners who will each receive a $250 STEM Camp Scholarship from the WTS Western NC Chapter. All three young women are in 7th grade at Montford North Star Academy in Asheville, North Carolina.

Ava Baggett will be attending North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, Summer Accelerator: Environmental Explorations.

Chloe Jackson will be attending North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, Summer Accelerator: Biotechnology.
 
Eliza Jackson will be attending North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, Summer Accelerator: Environmental Explorations.

Not all Traffic Impact Analyses (TIA) are a walk in the park; but they can be a great learning tool for everyone.Add Your Heading Text Here

We are pleased that the NCDOT has selected one of JMTE’s TIA to help highlight the complexity and sometimes controversial elements around Traffic Impact Analysis and how it affects the client and the community. We would like to thank the NCDOT for allowing us to participate in this continuing education process. The TIA chosen represents one of the more complicated and involved projects in the first years of JMTE.
