WAYS OF SAFEGUARDING THE RELIABILITY OF TRAFFIC SIGNALS

WEGE ZUR SICHERUNG DER VERFUEGBARKEIT VON LICHTSIGNALANLAGEN

THE AUTHORS MAKE A QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTS OF TRAFFIC SIGNAL FAILURES. THE MAIN EFFECTS ARE A LOWERING OF TRAFFIC SAFETY, AN INCREASE IN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ROAD USERS, A DECREASE IN THE TRAFFIC CAPACITY OF A ROAD CROSSING, AN INCREASE IN VEHICLE FUEL CONSUMPTION AND A LOWERING IN THE CONFIDENCE OF CITIZENS. THE FAILURE OF ELECTRIC BULBS WAS FOUND TO BE THE MAIN CAUSE OF BREAKDOWNS (65% OF FAILURES). THERE IS A DETAILED DISCUSSION ON THE VARIOUS TYPES OF BREAKDOWN, DEMANDS FOR RELIABILITY AND THEIR REALIZATION, AS WELL AS ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS.
