Traffic Diane J DJ Lost dianejmsn@hotmail.com Traffic engineering was not developed in London, New York or
Paris, but rather in ancient Rome. The Romans, of course, were
noted road builders. The Appian Way, for example, stretched
350 miles from the Eternal City to Brundisium. In Rome itself
there were actually stop signs and even alternate-side-of-the-
street parking. (Imagine Ben Hur pulling over for a pit stop
and coming back to find a cop ticketing his chariot!)
