High Visibility Intersections Improve Safety


  • High-Visibility Intersections – Improve Safety | Road

    Raising the visibility of intersections and designating safe zones for vulnerable road users can help reduce accidents and save lives. Increase the visibility of intersections to improve urban safety and mobility. According to the Federal Highway Administration FHWA, over 50% of fatal and injury crashes happen at or near an intersection.

  • Fremont Blvd Intersection Safety Improvements

    Installing high visibility crossings for bicyclists and pedestrians. Modifying portions of the median islands and realigning the traffic lanes to provide a better approach to driving through the intersection. Installing enhanced safety lighting at the intersections to improve nighttime visibility and safety.

  • Do High Visibility Crosswalks HVCs Improve Pedestrian

    Our Phase 1 project focused on one of the relatively low cost, widely employed pedestrian safety strategies, the use of High Visibility Crosswalk HVC markings. The placement and effectiveness of HVC markings continues to be subject of concern in the traffic safety community.

  • Do high visibility crosswalks improve pedestrian

    In this study, the effectiveness of High-Visibility Crosswalks HVCs in improving pedestrian safety at urban settings is assessed using SHRP2 Second Strategic Highway Research Program Naturalistic Driving Study NDS data. Various HVCs located at different positions on the roadway segment mid-block vs end-of-block and featuring different HVC...

  • Improving Rural Intersection Safety

    The visibility of intersections and, thus, the ability of approaching drivers to perceive them can be enhanced by installing larger regulatory and warning signs at intersections. • Such improvements may include: • stop signs • intersection warning signs • stop ahead signs • pavement markings

  • Commissioner Hardesty's Safety Interventions to High

    • Increase Safety and Visibility at Intersections on the High Crash Network, including: o Pull parking farther from intersections sometimes called “daylighting” o Install signals that give pedestrians a head start to help people see each other and avoid crashes

  • Safety improvements in south western Victoria

    We’re improving safety at more than 200 rural intersections across the state, including 13 intersections in south western Victoria. Safety upgrades include new traffic islands, line-marking, warning signs and rumble strips to warn motorists of an intersection, and the removal of line-of-sight obstructions to increase visibility.

  • Protected Intersections and Why They're Effective

    Especially on roadways with high speeds or traffic volumes, this can greatly improve safety outcomes for bicyclists making left turns. High visibility crosswalk markings. High-visibility crosswalk markings reinforce legal crosswalks at intersections and create legal crossings at non-intersection locations.

  • How we are making streets safe through Vision Zero

    Put “no right on red” restrictions in place at priority High Crash Network intersections. Improve visibility at pedestrian crossings by removing parking and overgrown vegetation: Include a pedestrian safety visibility review as part of all PBOT capital projects, paving projects,

  • The Relative Effectiveness of Pedestrian Safety

    high visibility crosswalks. The findings indicate that the types of conflicts and balance the time for different groups of road users at the intersections should be considered so that the improvement of the safety of one group does not compromise that of other groups. TRB 2012 Annual Meeting Original paper submittal not revised by author.

  • Urban Mobility – Create Safer Urban Roads | Road

    Reducing the number of vehicle lanes creates space for high-visibility intersections, protected bicycle lanes, and more visible mid-block crosswalks. Road diets combined with other countermeasures can offer significant safety benefits and reduce crashes by 19-47%.

  • Enhanced safety sought for Lambton County

    Enhanced safety sought for Lambton County intersections. St. Clair Township council is asking Lambton County to consider adding higher-visibility stop signs, and even four-way stops, at two...

  • Safety improvements in Northern Victoria: high-risk

    The Victorian Government, in partnership with the TAC, is investing $25 million in intersection upgrades across regional Victoria. Rural and regional intersections pose a significant safety risk on our road network. With motorists, pedestrians and cyclists making turns and crossing paths, the risk of a collision is very high.

  • Beyond Bike Lanes: How to Improve Bicycle Safety

    Bicycle Forward Stop Bars. Similar to bike boxes, bicycle forward stop bars are used at stop sign intersections with traditional bike lanes. The vehicle lane’s stop bar is set further back from the bike lane’s stop bar, so a stopped cyclist is much more visible to a stopped driver. Again, this is intended to prevent “right hook” collisions.
