Traffic Control Devices 2014

TRB’s Transportation Research Record (TRR): Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2463 Traffic Control Devices 2014 consists of 8 papers that explore a simulator-based analysis of driver performance using three- or four-section displays for permissive left turns; predictions of driver action at signalized intersections by using a nested logit model; an interactive decision support system for predicting flashing yellow arrow left-turn mode by time of day; and safety and operational impacts of optional flashing yellow arrow delay.

This TRR also examines traffic sign recognition using sparse representations and active contour models; driver yielding at traffic control signals, pedestrian hybrid beacons, and rectangular rapid-flashing beacons in Texas; evaluation of overhead-mounted sign alternatives for lane use and destination information on multilane conventional roads; and an investigation of pedestrian crossing speeds at signalized intersections with heavy pedestrian volumes.
