Pedestrian Risk at the Signalized Pedestrian Crossing Equipped with Countdown Display

In this paper the authors proposed a method for assessing pedestrian risk at the signalized pedestrian crossing equipped with counter. Results showed that 17.5% of pedestrians were at high risk and male pedestrians are more often in dangerous situations (20.4%) than female pedestrians (14.4%). About 3% of all examined pedestrians created conflict situations, more frequently in first 5 seconds and last 5 seconds of red light phase (79.7% of all offenders), but the risk that pedestrians will create a conflict situation were higher in other time of red light phase. Analysis of pedestrians’ behavior at pedestrian crossings equipped with countdown display could point to potentially safety problems for pedestrians and those analysis could give direction for proposing and implementing adequate countermeasures. Also, numerically defined pedestrian accident risk could assess road safety level for pedestrians and show accident occurrence probability.
