Cities in developing countries suffer from a dearth of traffic statistics which is necessary for analysis of traffic situation and for proposing solutions to traffic problems in these cities. The governorate of Rafah, Palestine is an example of these cities. It suffers from traffic congestion and long delays especially in the center of the city, which is an active business district and has the highest population density in Rafah Governorate. This research aims to analyze the traffic situation in the governorate of Rafah. It analyzes traffic counts collected at 25 different intersections. Based on the statistical analysis of these data, conversion factors from short to long counting periods are obtained. These factors are useful in shortening the duration of the traffic count and thus help in cost-saving. This research presents spot speed studies at the most important locations in the governorate. It also presents the results of statistical analysis of a questionnaire exploring the views of several road users about the traffic problems and solutions in the governorate.
