Module A - Slide 13


In discussing APS, we will talk about requirements of some US legislation and guidelines and standards that apply to APS. These include the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, known as TEA-21, and now replaced by TEA-LU and soon replaced by the next transportation act. However, TEA-21 contained some specific language that resulted in some policy statements that we’ll review. The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, (referred to as the MUTCD) has specific sections on APS. Another standard is Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act which led to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the ADA, and the guidelines that are published in conjunction with the ADA.
