Title : Traffic conflicts as surrogate safety measure for accidents involving vulnerable road users. (R-7227)
Abstract: The main objective of this research it to develop a safety indicator with its specific use to evaluate vulnerable road users' safety. In recent years, the use of traffic conflicts as a surrogate for accidents has become more common, but the developed safety indicators seem less applicable for conflicts involving cyclists and pedestrians. An thorough literature review is conducted in order to identify which behavioral processes contribute to traffic conflict involvement of vulnerable road users. Current safety indicators are examined in order to determine why they are less applicable for cyclists and pedestrians. Based on these findings, a new indicator will be developed and tested using several empirical studies.
