Road Crossing Behaviour Of Pedestrians At Uncontrolled Intersections
Uncontrolled intersections are the most common intersection type. Although they do play an important role in the control of traffic network. In most of the sequence, pedestrians are considered as mode of transportation. As the pedestrians need to walk along the road and they must cross the road. Crossing the road should be safe, easy, comfort and convenient to road users. This paper presents study and analysis of road crossing behavior of pedestrians, a study conducted at Bangalore city. They cause more effects on the behavior of pedestrian characteristics like age, gender, stages, presence of children, using mobile phones, carrying with or without baggage and their crossing patterns were examined based on pedestrian flow characteristics like crossing time and waiting time and all these parameters were extracted from video-graphic survey. The analysis for extracted data is performed by considering various combinations of pedestrian characteristics and vehicle characteristics. The result shows that most of them uses mobile phones, they cross the road by one stage, and the movement of pedestrian is straight. The crossing speed of male is more than the female pedestrians and also male take more risk compare to female while crossing the road. If the number of pedestrian increases while crossing the road then the vehicle speed gets decreases.
