Assessing pedestrian and bicyclist risk at roundabouts
While roundabouts have been shown, in certain situations, to reduce fatal and severe injury crashes when compared to traditional signalized intersections, their impact on pedestrian safety is not fully understood. This report from Minnesota Department of Transportation and the University of Minnesota investigates pedestrian travel and safety using observations of the interactions between pedestrians and bicyclists and motor vehicles at two modern urban roundabouts in Minnesota. The report also calculated pedestrian delay at the roundabouts as pedestrians waited either for gaps in traffic or for motor vehicle drivers to yield.
