RESEARCH PROBLEM STATEMENTS

Committee A3B04, Pedestrians, has recognized the identification of research needs to be a major committee function. The committee has previously evaluated and published research problem statements, and the publication of this Circular is a continuation of that activity. The Circular is intended as a means for communicating problem statements to the transportation research community. In order of priority, beginning with that of highest priority, the problem statements, listed by title, are: traffic conflict analysis as a measure of pedestrian safety; identification and prioritization of pedestrian safety problem location; development of a pedestrian exposure data collection technique; pedestrian comprehension of traffic control devices; evaluation of pedestrian street crossings behavior at signalized intersections; pedestrian visibility; evaluation of specific safety messages for child and elderly pedestrians; improvement of state and local accident driver record systems; and special event system planning and design.
