Driver Compliance at Enhanced Pedestrian Crossings in Utah

Pedestrian crossings are often located on roads with high traffic volume and speed where pedestrians are more at risk of injury and death. Resources available for improving pedestrian crossings are limited and only the most effective treatments should be used. Several previous studies have focused on crash history at pedestrian crossings, however, some of Utah’s newer treatments, including RFFBs, HAWKs, and standard ped-activated beacons, have not been in place long enough to get statistically meaningful results, therefore the purpose of this research is to use driver compliance rates as a surrogate for safety data. This research will help the UDOT Traffic and Safety Division and Regions in determining the most effective crossings to use at high-risk crossing locations.
