DEPENDENCE OF CONFLICT INTENSITY BETWEEN TRAFFIC FLOWS AND TRAFFIC SAFETY

Certainly, the largest number of traffic accidents and their consequences occur at conflict points (intersecting, merging, or diverging). Although the number of conflict points influences the incidence of traffic accidents, the intensity of traffic at these conflict points is much more important. This paper proposes a method to determine the intensity of conflicts at conflict points, intersections, and other sections of the traffic network in order to establish the interrelationship between the number of traffic accidents and the conflict point intensity. The aim is to reduce the overall number of traffic accidents and their consequences, as well as to reduce the intensity of conflicts at conflict points through greater understanding of traffic flow conditions.
