Compendium of Student Papers: 2016 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program

Mitchell P. Fisher, II and Christopher Garcia, Authors, and H. Gene Hawkins, Editor, August 2016

This report is a compendium of research papers written by students participating in the 2016 Undergraduate Transportation Scholars Program. The 10-week summer program, now in its 26th year, provides undergraduate students in civil engineering the opportunity to learn about transportation engineering through participating in sponsored transportation research projects. The program design allows students to interact directly with a Texas A&M University faculty member or Texas A&M Transportation Institute researcher in developing a research proposal, conducting valid research, and documenting the research results through oral presentations and research papers.

The papers in this compendium report on the following topics: 1) Generalized Trends in Wrong-Way Driving; and 2) Travel Rates of an Aging Population: A Texas Analysis.

Keywords: Wrong-Way Driving, Travel Rates, Aging Population
