Do High Visibility Crosswalks Improve Pedestrian Safety? A Correlated Grouped Random Parameters Approach Using Naturalistic Driving Study Data
This paper provides a thorough evaluation of a new and widely used traffic calming measure in the U.S., i.e., the High-Visibility Crosswalks (HVCs). For the evaluation, various safety surrogate measures were investigated and statistically modeled using an exciting source of behavioral and vehicle data, the Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS) data.
