SAFETY EVALUATION OF SCHOOL AND PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS

Pedestrian and school crossings at some intersections are controlled by Sg-44 traffic signals. The Sg-44 signals are pedestrian actuated, and they have standard signal heads for the major street approaches and stop signs for the minor street approaches. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the safety of school and pedestrian crossings which are controlled by Sg-44 signals throughout the State of Nebraska. The safety records of 188 sites which are controlled by Sg-44 signals were studied. The average accident rates were calculated and compared with the average accident rates for fully signalized and stop sign controlled intersections at the local and state level.
