Driver behaviour and conflicts at pedestrian crossings

The extent and characteristics of collisions at uncontrolled marked pedestrian crossing in New South Wales are described. Factors contributing to driver behaviour on the approach to such crossings are discussed. Particular attention is paid to the perception of crossing facilities, the preparation for the presence of pedestrians and the reaction to conflict situations. The development of a technique for monitoring driver behaviour on the approach to crossings is described briefly. Preliminary data indicate differences in driver behaviour when pedestrians are present. Implications of this finding are discussed.
