New Cooperative Research Programs Report: Improving Pedestrian Safety at Unsignalized Crossings

Award-winning research jointly sponsored by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) and the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) has produced quantitative guidelines to help engineers and transit agencies determine the recommended treatments appropriate for unsignalized pedestrian crossings in various street environments and traffic conditions. This article briefly introduces TCRP Report 112–NCHRP Report 562, discusses its quantitative procedures, and points out its development of supporting information on pedestrian walking speeds and the yielding behavior of motorists.
