Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Traffic Technicians — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. During their first five years in the workforce, individuals in this position earn $37K on average. Survey participants with five to 10 years under their belts see an only a slightly bigger average of $39K. Traffic Technicians claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $47K. In the end, more experience does seem to mean larger paychecks; seasoned Traffic Technicians with more than 20 years of experience earn a predictably higher median salary of $55K.
