Safety Aspects of the Design and Construction of Bus Stops in the Streets in a Settlement

Sigurnosni aspekt projektiranja i izgradnje autobusnih stajalista u ulicama u naselju

Bus stops are specific elements of the road network with characteristic elements of traffic signalization and technical equipment. Legislative regulations and rules clearly define the basic criteria in the stages of planning, design and construction of bus stops. However, given the complexity of the traffic, the needs of road users, and the impact of the immediate surroundings of the road, bus stops are often treated in inadequate way in certain previously defined stages. Inadequate treatment leads to failures which are noticeable after their construction, and in the process of their exploitation. For many reasons, the failures in the design are mainly related to an increase in risk and threats to the security of direct traffic participants, and manifest themselves through conflict situations and traffic accidents. The paper describes the examples of inadequate approach to the treatment of bus stops from the aspect of traffic safety, and provides recommendations and proposals of measures for improvement.
