Viewing the MUTCD
If you have difficulty viewing the MUTCD sections below (in PDF format), you may need to download and install new software. For best results we recommend Netscape, version 4 or higher, Internet Explorer, version 4 or higher, and Adobe Acrobat Reader, version 4.
Certain Chapters of the MUTCD (those affected by Revision No. 1 changes) may be viewed in HTML format, in addition to PDF format. HTML formatted chapters are accessible to individuals with disabilities.
Printing the MUTCD
The new manual is set up for double-sided, offset printing of over 1100 sheets of paper to be placed in a three-ring binder. The first 5 pages include a spine, title page, cover page, etc. If you are having trouble printing the MUTCD, you may need to adjust settings in "File > Page Setup" menu, in Adobe Acrobat. A high-grade ink-jet or laser printer is recommended for a quality hard copy.
Certain chapters and sections of the MUTCD have very large file sizes due to the large page count, number of illustrations, or both, contained within (example, Section 6H, 96 pages with 46 illustrations). These large files can present problems when printing, depending on the printer used. This is often due to the amount of memory within the printer itself, which is often minimal, especially with the printers sold through office supply outlets. If the printer will not print the file, or prints it with errors, sending the file to the printer in smaller sections (10-20 pages at a time) often solves the problem. If you are still experiencing difficulties after making the suggested adjustments, please submit your problem to Operations Feedback and you will receive a reply.
