A MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR TRAFFIC ON A TWO-LANE ROAD WITH SOME EMPIRICAL RESULTS: IT EMPIRICAL RESULTS

DATA OBTAINED BY THE SWEDISH ROAD INSTITUTE WERE USED TO EVALUATE THE MODEL. SOME SUPPORT FOR THE APPLICABILITY OF THE MODEL WAS OBTAINED, E.G. FROM THE FACT THAT THE ESTIMATED DISTRIBUTIONS OF DESIRED SPEEDS ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE VARIOUS SPEED LIMITS. WHEN APPLICABLE, THE MODEL CAN BE USED IN TRAFFIC AND SAFETY STUDIES TO CALCULATE THE EFFECT UPON VARIOUS TRAFFIC CHARACTERISTICS OF MEASURES SUCH AS INCREASED VISIBILITY OR SPEED LIMITS. /TRRL/
