Does anyone know how traffic control is managed in the ST universe (or any other, for that matter) in respect of cloaked ships?
I realize that the reason for cloaking is to travel undetected and that a cloaked ship can detect an uncloaked ship. How, though, would two (or more) cloaked ships manage to avoid colliding with one another? Space is big, but my understanding is that vessels tend to travel along relatively well-defined routes (if analogy with real-world air traffic holds) -- even more so when one considers phenomena such as the Indri VIII highway.
If this topic has been addressed elsewhere, I would appreciate a reference.

People's inexperience & ignorance about a subject is a great assistance to him who speaks of it.
