A MEASURE OF DECELERATION OF MAIN ROAD STREAMS DRIVERS AT T-JUNCTIONS: A REGRESSION ANALYSIS

A measure of deceleration of major-road drivers approaching a t-junction (Chrissikopoulos et al, see TRIS 380552), is examined in relation to vehicle speed and in relation to the accepted gap and crossing time of vehicles in the other stream crossing into the junction. A regression analysis shows that there is a negative correlation between the measure of deceleration and the time difference between the accepted gap and crossing time. Data from three rural trunk road sites are used. (Author/TRRL)
