Analysis of drivers' behavior at non-signalized intersection without right-of-way using a developed simulation program

In Japan, many head-on collisions occur on subsidiary roads at non signalized intersections and elderly drivers tend to cause this type of accidents. Therefore, to clarify the principal accident causation of head-on collisions is strongly required in our country which is an aging society. In the current study a simulation program was established based on the experimental data and the driving behavior of expert drivers and elderly drivers were compared with focusing on the collisions with crossing bicycles, drivers' confirming safety behavior and their foot positions.
