CENSUS OF CONFLICTS AT JUNCTION ACCESS ROADS

ERHEBUNG VON VERKEHRSKONFLIKTEN AN KNOTENZUFAHRTEN

Determination of critical traffic situations by means of the traffic conflict technique enables accident black spots on roads to be determined. The method provides for the checking of a valid relation between conflicts and accidents. An American census manual showed that there were so many different types of conflict that it is possible to assign them to the accident categories of the official accident cause index, and that a new classification of conflict severity was necessary. Conflicts were counted at six junction access roads and assessed with the accidents of the past three years. The use of multiple regression with the criteria traffic volume and degree of conflict severity lands to a satisfactory prediction of accidents. /TRRL/
