EFFECT OF CURVATURE AND SIGHT DISTANCE ON THE FREE SPEED OF VEHICLES ON CURVES ON 2-LANE ROADS

As a part of the road user cost study, an investigation was conducted on the determination of relationships between free speeds of different types of vehicles and some of the factors likely to influence free speeds. The investigation was based on the assumption that free speeds of vehicles on individual curves depended on important factors such as curve radius, sight distance and roughness. The paper gives an account of the investigation work and presents the results. (TRRL)
