LANE BEHAVIOUR ON TWO-LANE HIGHWAYS WITH TWO-WAY TRAFFIC

SPURVERHALTEN AUF ZWEISPURIGEN LANDSTRASSEN MIT GEGENVERKEHR

UP TO NOW A LIMITED NUMBER OF CONCLUSIONS WERE DRAWN FROM THE PERCEPTIVE POWERS AND BEHAVIOUR OF DRIVERS AS REGARDS ROAD CROSS SECTIONS. IN AN INVESTIGATION ON THE SUBJECT A NEW MEASURING TECHNIQUE WAS USED FOR OBTAINING DATA. THE PROCESSING OF DATA WAS CARRIED OUT BY PHOTOGRAMMETRY. THE TEST ROAD WAS A SECTION OF THE FEDERAL ROAD 33. THE RESULTS AND EVALUATIONS OF OTHER INVESTIGATIONS SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING: UNDER UNHINDERED DRIVING CONDITIONS THE DRIVERS AIM AT A MINIMUM DISTANCE FROM THE NEARSIDE KERB. THIS DISTANCE DEPENDS ON THE SPEED. IN TWO-WAY TRAFFIC A SUFFICIENT SAFE DISTANCE FROM ONCOMING TRAFFIC IS DECISIVE FOR LANE POSITIONING. DRIVERS IN FRONT PROVIDE A HELPFUL POSITION AS REGARDS LANE POSITIONING.
