Segurança de pedestres em rotatórias urbanas

Among the various techniques to mitigate the pernicious causes from the crossings are in traffic roundabouts, road device better efficiency and lower costs, which are intended to simplify the intersection so that traffic that there interacts have a safe conduct. Although it has been widely used in the Brazilian city traffic, roundabouts prioritize motor vehicle due to lack of infrastructure, whether by choice or lack of technical knowledge, that mainly pedestrian has equal security. To assess what are the indicators that lead to this situation in the devices were used five roundabouts in São José do Rio Preto-five in San Carlos and proposed a confrontation of technical concepts between specialists using the AHP method, literature and reality found in site, to check for possible similarities and differences between definitions, concepts and options. Came to the conclusion that literature and the experts advocate pedestrians as project priority, implementation, infrastructure and maintenance but the devices are not able to safety.
