Understanding drivers’ interaction with different pedestrian hybrid beacon (PHB) phases in the presence or absence of supporting message signs will improve pedestrian safety at road crossings with PHB. The proposed study will involve a robust investigation of driver behavior and understanding related to PHB phasing and supplementary message signs to improve PHB design and driver compliance.
