Relationship between unsignalised intersection geometry and accident rates: final results

This paper presents the results of a study investigating the effect of unsignalised intersection geometry on accident rates. The study adopted a 'multi-factor' approach, in addition to new techniques, which were used to analyse 206 unsignalised intersection sites from throughout Queensland. The application of these techniques has determined relationships between numerous variables and the rates and types of accidents occurring at unsignalised intersections. This paper discusses these findings, which have confirmed the validity of several of the current design standards for unsignalised intersections, in addition to identifying new outcomes.
