traffic control point
Definition/Scope: A traffic control point (TCP) is a designated spot on the ground or road network--in a static garrison type environment--where Military Police control the traffic flow. The three goals in point control of traffic are orderly movement of traffic in accordance with traffic control plans, no unnecessary traffic delays and minimum essential control methods. These goals should be accomplished with maximum use of traffic control devices, relieving MPs of this duty when possible.
