This document aims to support cities in setting road safety targets and to monitor progress in improving urban road safety. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists account for nearly 80% of urban traffic fatalities. Cities should thus intensify efforts to improve the safety of vulnerable road users. This document presents traffic safety indicators for different...

The impact of quiet electric cars, listening to music and conversing on the phone on cyclists’ auditory perception and cycling safety Cycling safety is a major traffic safety issue both in the Netherlands and abroad. The number of cyclist fatalities in the EU has been decreasing in recent years, however at a slower rate than those of car occupants or...

To better understand the emerging area of low-speed automated shuttles, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) partnered with the John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe) to review the current state of the practice of low-speed automated shuttles. These vehicles share...

The objective of the study was to evaluate the safety effects of two countermeasures with respect to vehicle–pedestrian crashes—the provision of protected or protected/permissive left-turn phasing and the provision of leading pedestrian intervals (LPIs)—using a before–after empirical Bayesian methodology. The study used data from North...

Ultra-Thin Bonded Wearing Course (UTBWC) pavement surfacing was introduced to Minnesota in 1999 under the brand name, “NovaChip”. It was developed as a preventative maintenance option to extend pavement life by placing a thin open/gap-graded hot mix asphalt (HMA) lift over a polymer-modified asphalt emulsion. The open/gap-graded aggregate also...

Cycle gates have recently been introduced in London, as a method of separating cycle traffic and general traffic at signal-controlled junctions where a significant proportion of motor vehicles turn left. This report presents the findings of research into road user behaviour and attitudes at two cycle gates on Cycle Superhighways, these being at Queen Street...

This report presents corrosion study findings related to corrosion resistance of eight types of metallic dowel bars. The accelerated laboratory corrosion testing was performed using seven small-scale concrete slabs that simulated typical concrete pavements for 452 d of a modified Southern Exposure followed by a detailed autopsy of the extracted bar samples. The...

Introduction and adoption of autonomous vehicles (AVs) will likely reshape the transportation system and many economic activities. The economic literature on technology adoption can provide lessons on the diffusion of AVs as well as the social and economic impacts. We rely on the threshold model of diffusion, where heterogeneous agents make decisions to pursue...

The new Complete Streets Design and Construction Standards, which govern roadway design in the City of Edmonton replace the 2013 Complete Streets Guidelines. The Complete Streets approach moves away from traditional design by designing streets that reflect the surrounding area’s context, land use and users. A complete street integrates all road users...

Data is essential for understanding the demands placed on road assets and transport networks. There is an opportunity through advances in real-time technologies to improve the delivery of network management and asset management activities. This requires an understanding of both the real-time technologies that are available, and the real-time information needs...

This report examines how increasing automation of cars and trucks could affect road safety, and which security vulnerabilities will need to be addressed with the rise of self-driving vehicles. It applies the principles of the Safe System approach and relevance of Vision Zero for road safety to the wider discussion on vehicle automation. It also takes into...
