    This report provides an analysis of vehicle detector data on the Santa Monica Freeway in Los Angeles, Calif. It was found that approximately 32 percent of the mainline freeway detectors appeared to give reasonable results. The report suggests that Caltrans District 07 staff make efforts towards increasing the number of detectors which give reliable information so that an evaluation and simulation of the Smart Corridor on the Santa Monica Freeway may be undertaken. This report was revised and re-issued as UCB-ITS-PWP-93-10 (PATH Database record #4779)
