Understanding Interactions between Drivers and Pedestrian Features at Signalized Intersections

The major proposed research question is: "How do drivers interact with pedestrian features at signalized intersections when pedestrians are or are not present?" These pedestrian features include pedestrian signs, pedestrian signals, traffic signals, crosswalks, and pavement markings. Driver interactions with pedestrian features may be observed from driver responses to different pedestrian features, yielding behaviors to pedestrians, driver speeds, braking patterns, and attention and/or distraction. The proposed research question will cover four broad topics: Vulnerable Road Users, Roadway Features and Driver Performance, Intersections, and Driver Speed. Gender and age group will be included in the research.
