TRB Research Record -- Pedestrians 2010
The Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2198 is dedicated to studies on non-motorized transportation. The volume contains 17 papers on incorporating bicycle and pedestrian topics in university transportation courses, high-visibility school crosswalks, safety effectiveness of leading pedestrian intervals, driver and pedestrian behavior at uncontrolled crosswalks, pedestrian traffic flow in confined passageways, roadway intersection characteristics and pedestrian crash risk, and pedestrian-vehicle conflicts.
The issue also examines pedestrian safety prediction for urban signalized intersections, a real-time system for tracking and classification of pedestrians and bicycles, use of pedestrian crash data to identify unsafe transit service segments, the effect of street network design on walking and biking, multimodal driveway design, shared-use paths adjacent to the roadway, signal timing optimization models for a midblock pedestrian crossing, pedestrian safety retraining for elementary and middle school students, and modeling the evacuation of crowded pedestrian facilities.
