Signalized Intersections: Informational Guide. Pedestrian conflicts at signalized intersections. Providing a dedicated left-turn lane reduces potential collisions between left-turning and through vehicles, increasing the capacity of the approach for both left and through traffic. Abstract. Traffic conflict between turning vehicles and pedestrians is the leading cause of pedestrian fatalities at signalized intersections. In order to provide a solution for evaluating intersection safety for vulnerable road users, this paper first determines the most important factors in analyzing pedestrian-vehicle conflict and puts forward a pedestrian safety conflict index (SCI) model Cited by: 3. They found that the proportion of left- turning traffic to total traffic had a significant and positive relationship to pedestrian crashes for signalized intersections. For stop-controlled intersections, left-turning traffic volume was found to be more important than total entering volume and was included as a solitary factor (not as a proportion). The data collected on these intersections are the Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT), the pedestrian volume, the number of accidents, speed at the intersections, and other intersection data. Linear regression model is developed so as to study the effect of various factors on the left turning accidents at these signalized intersections.

treatments that may be used to improve pedestrian safety at signalized intersections. The focus of the research was on conflicts between left-turning vehicles and pedestrians. To achieve these objectives, the research was comprehensive in its consideration of pedestrian safety issues at signalized intersections in Texas.

PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS AND LEFT-TURNING TRAFFIC AT SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS. The over-representation of left turning vehicles in accidents that occur at signalized intersections is an important problem in road safety. One aspect of this problem is that involving accidents between such vehicles and pedestrians. One of the main issues in pedestrian safety is conflicts with turning vehicles. This study aims to develop an integrated model to represent the variations in the maneuvers of left-turners (left-hand traffic) at signalized intersections that dynamically considers the vehicle reaction to intersection geometry and crossing by:
