The traffic starts discharging from an approach at an intersection with the signal turning green. The constant headway considered from the fourth or fifth headway position is referred to as
At the instant the traffic light turns green, an automobile starts with a constant acceleration, a=10m/s2. At the same instant a truck, travelling with a constant speed of 5 m/s, overtakes and passes the automobile. (a) How far beyond the traffic signal will the automobile overtake the truck?

Traffic on a highway is moving at a rate 360 vehicles per hour at a location. If the number of vehicles arriving on this highway follows Poisson distribution, the probability (round off to 2 decimal places) that the headway between successive vehicles lies between successive vehicles lies between 6 and 10 seconds in
