I am a Temporary Traffic Control Specialist and have been in the industry for 30+ years. With my Associates we have a combined experience of over 100+ years in Traffic Control.
While working for the City of Overland Park, KS as a Traffic Control Technician in the Traffic Engineering Division, some of my duties included Plan Review of the plans submitted for work in the city limits, Right of Way Permit review for necessary temporary traffic control plans, redesign of the City handbook specific to temporary traffic control including the municipal codes which pertained to them, design of temporary traffic control patterns for in-house designs, design of special event plans for all events including marathons, festivals, parades and any impediment of traffic in the city limits.
One of the duties I was asked to perform was in-house training of maintenance personnel, parks and recreation personnel, inspectors and any other personnel who were subject to live traffic while performing their duties.
I have continued my teaching through American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA). I have been instructing through the ATSSA for 17 years and have trained over 20,000 people to date.
