RESEARCH ON PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

ONDERZOEK NAAR DE VERKEERSVEILIGHEID VAN DE VOETGANGER

Because there are not enough traffic accidents in residential areas to be used for statistical research, the accident cannot be used in a short range study as a measure of degree of hazard. Another measure is the near-miss or severe conflict between road users. The possible use of such conflict techniques is outlined. It is known that measures in the field of town planning and infrastructure influence human behaviour in residential areas more than do legal or social measures. It is first necessary to develop conflict observation technique as a reliable measuring instrument; the technique has been used for the first time in a study to compare traffic safety in two residential areas in delft which are different in layout.
