This paper presents a brief description and overview of a number of traffic conflict technique (tct) studies carried out in Israel by various researchers. First, a comparison between objective and subjective measures of traffic conflicts is described. Although some compatibility was achieved, overall agreement was not high. A second study described deals with a conflict study evaluation of flashing amber signal operation. Results of that study were encouraging and could warrant the conduct of a larger scale before and after experiment. Finally, a small operational application of tct to a hazardous intersection is described. All studies were conducted at research organizations. The tct in Israel cannot, as yet, be regarded as in operational use. For the covering abstract of the conference see TRIS 393142. (TRRL)
