Pedestrian behaviour at signalized intersections

Retzko, Hans-Georg and Androsch, Wolfgang (1974):
Pedestrian behaviour at signalized intersections.
In: Traffic Engineering and Control, 15 (16/17), pp. 735-738, [Article]

Abstract

In 1972 and 1973, pedestrian behaviour was studied at 24 crosswalks of signalised intersections in central business districts of four cities during about 5000 cycles by time-recorder measurements and television analysis with special respect to wrong behaviour patterns. Collected data were evaluated by different methods, mainly by multiple correlation and regression analysis. The main results are that wrong pedestrian behaviour is favoured or even stimulated by unappropriate signal timings for vehicle traffic as well as for pedestrian traffic. An amber light for pedestrians, the duration of which is equivalent to the clearance time of pedestrians, has proved to be better than signal timings without amber lights. Additional studies of accidents at crosswalks with different signal timings should be carried out
