About Us

The National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD) or the “National Committee” is an organization whose purpose is to assist in the development of standards, guides and warrants for traffic control devices and practices used to regulate, warn and guide traffic on streets and highways. The NCUTCD recommends to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and to other appropriate agencies proposed revisions and interpretations to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and other accepted national standards. NCUTCD develops public and professional awareness of the principles of safe traffic control devices and practices and provides a forum for qualified individuals with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints to exchange professional information.

More information about the NCUTCD can be found on our printable trifold brochure.

The files below were developed to assist NCUTCD members in describing the NCUTCD when they make presentations to professional groups and others.  If you use these slides and make changes or update the information, please send your revised presentation to the Executive Secretary (secretary@ncutcd.org).
