RIGHT TURN ON RED -- A TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SIMULATION

This paper outlines a stochastic model of the right-turn-on-red (RTOR) policy for a high-density urban area consisting of one-way streets. This model is used to investigate the effects of (1) cross-street traffic volume, (2) right-turn lane traffic volume, (3) pedestrian arrival rate, and (4) balking rate for right-turning vehicles. The model provides the methodology for studying the RTOR maneuver under various conditions. Specific recommendations on when to use RTOR are developed for typical urban conditions.
