TRAINING TOOL-KIT FOR VEHICLE CONFLICT OBSERVATIONS AT INTERSECTIONS

The new crash reporting requirement in Florida has significantly reduced the number of crash reports available for roadway safety studies. Therefore, the demand for accurate crash surrogate data has increased. Additionally, the current method of estimating crash surrogate data is based on a National Highway Institute study conducted in 1982 in Kansas City, Missouri, for 48 intersections. A comprehensive traffic conflict study was conducted by the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) to observe traffic conflicts, collect crash data and develop tables for Florida-based intersections. This document is a training "tool-kit" for instructors of traffic conflict observers. This tool-kit includes important information on observer training. The classroom training materials and the handouts provided in this report can be extracted at the instructor's discretion for observer training.
