INTERSECTION GEOMETRIC DESIGN ISSUES FOR OLDER DRIVERS AND PEDESTRIANS
This paper discusses some of the specific problems older drivers and pedestrians have at intersections, the relationships between these problems and specific geometric design elements, and changes or improvements in the way intersections are currently designed to enhance safety and improve mobility for older road-users. The paper is organized by maneuver, i.e., each section addresses a specific maneuver that a driver would make at an intersection and the problems and changes in design associated with that maneuver.
