Driver Behaviour Lane Controlled Road Space

As the desire for travel becomes even greater, both for business and leisure, so the demands on the infrastructure will also increase. In many developed countries the transport infrastructure is already well established with little scope for new construction. Therefore many network operators are considering how they can work their assets harder and achieve greater throughput of traffic, whilst ensuring the safety of their customers. This need for extracting additional capacity, coupled with relieving existing levels of congestion and maintaining a safe network, has led to the consideration of new and innovative traffic management schemes or operational regimes. These include dedicating certain lanes to specific types of traffic at different times of the day to give priority and encourage car sharing (more commonly known as High Occupancy Vehicles lanes), slow moving vehicles (to keep them in their own lanes and allow other traffic to pass) and for use as part-time lanes. As these new and invitation schemes become part of today’s landscape we need to identify and understand the behavioral responses to proposed signaling of part-time lanes.
