Modeling of Pedestrian Gap Acceptance for Improving Safety 0f Uncontrolled Mid-Block Crosswalks

This paper developed models to capture and predict pedestrian gap acceptance (PGA) behavior at uncontrolled mid-block crosswalks. The three models used were a critical gap model, probability based model, and binary logit model. Field studies were used to collect the data of different attributes using a set of video cameras at several typical unsignalizedmid-block crosswalks. The results demonstrated that PGA binary logit models perfofrm better that he other two models.
