Improved Safety and Efficiency of Protected/Permitted Right Turns in Oregon

The goal of the research is to develop an understanding of the safety and operational implications of using the Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) to indicate a permitted right turn, and to provide general guidance as to when Protected/Permitted Right Turns (PPRT) phasing should be used to maximize the safety of non-motorized road users and the overall efficiency of Oregon Department's of Transportation (ODOT’s) signalized intersections.
