COMPETITION FOR THE USE OF TRAFFIC SPACE

NUTZUNGSKONKURRENZ IN VERKEHRSRAEUMEN

STARTING FROM AN ANALYSIS OF THE USE OF TRAFFIC SPACE BY VARIOUS TRAFFIC STREAMS, A TYPOLOGY OF USE AND COMPETITION FOR USE IS TO BE WORKED OUT. THE VARIOUS USES OF TRAFFIC SPACE ARE TO BE EVALUATED AND PROPOSALS ARE TO BE MADE FOR THE REDUCTION OF CONFLICTS AND TESTED FOR THEIR PRACTICAL APPLICATION. CHANGES IN THE BEHAVIOUR OF USERS OF TRAFFIC SPACE ARE TO BE EXAMINED FOR THEIR RELEVANCE TO SAFETY. THE AIM OF THE STUDY IS TO DEVELOP, ON THE BASIS OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE STRUCTURE OF TRAFFIC SPACE AND TRAFFIC STREAMS, A MEANS OF ESTIMATING THE DANGER OF CONFLICTS BETWEEN VARIOUS GROUPS OF ROAD USERS, AND ALSO TO DEVELOP CRITERIA FOR REDUCING OR AVOIDING CONFLICTS.
