Behaviour at Pedestrian Crossings

Collisions at pedestrian crossings are a problem which cannot be solved by purely technical measures, because the interaction of the behavior of the pedestrians and the drivers is not a technical problem. The planning of the campaign Yellow Zebra of the Touring Club of Switzerland together with Fussverkehr Schweiz (The Swiss Pedestrian Association) has shown that there are few exact data on the simultaneous motions of the different road users on marked pedestrian crossings. In order to improve these human related interactions at crossings, and to give the best recommendations for behavior, a better knowledge of the exact movements at pedestrian crossings under different conditions would be helpful to get the best results.
