Presentation:
Yielding Behavior at Unsignalized Crossings in Vancouver

 

About the Presentation:

This presentation summarizes the results of a study of yielding behaviour and pedestrian comfort at unsignalized crossings in Vancouver. Clips of road user interactions at pedestrian crossings were extracted from video data.  The researchers then used a web survey to solicit ratings of random interactions by three pools of participants: the general public, a citizen’s advisory committee, and traffic safety experts.  The survey results were combined with on‐site interviews with committee members to understand broad perceptions of typical crossing experiences, including perceptions of yielding, comfort, and safety.
