RESEARCH ON THE IMPACT OF SPEED AND PEDESTRIAN CROSSING ON THE ROAD TRAFFIC CONGENTION. CASE STUDY- MIHAI VITEAZUL BVD, SIBIU
The speed is a significant constraint in terms of traffic, because it is directly related to safety, time, convenience and economical aspect for any type of road. Pedestrian crossings are a major concern for road safety as pedestrians are the most vulnerable road users, especially when they are involved in an accident. The paper aims to analyse the traffic velocity and queues on Mihai Viteazul Bvd., where, due to intensive traffic and the existence of ten crosswalks there are blockages and search solutions for improving circulation. The results of this analysis can be used by decision makers to optimize artery and design ideal pedestrian facilities.
