— = Not tested
* = Not statistically different at the 95% confidence level
M = Data collected by the manual method are statistically more accurate at the 95% confidence level
VMMS1, VMMS2, VMMS3, VMMS4 = Data collected by the particular method are statistically more accurate at the 95% confidence level
= Shoulder width measured in place of lane width
