Abstract

Pedestrian behaviour plays an important role in analyzing the operations of unsignalized intersections and isolated crossings, because a pedestrian creates a complex of interactions with vehicles at such locations. A crossing manoeuvre involves the pedestrian making a decision to accept a particular gap in the traffic flow. The “yes/no” nature of the decision gives gap acceptance a unique set of conditions that can be used in the analysis. The aim of this paper is to investigate pedestrians’ traffic gap acceptance for street crossing in urban areas. The paper presents the most important studies that have been done in this area. Beside the basic concepts and methods of determining parameters such as accepted and the critical gaps, the paper shows the influence of certain factors on the length of the pedestrian delay, such as: pedestrians waiting time, the presence of illegally parked vehicles, built environment, the vehicles’ characteristics (speed, size), pedestrians’ characteristics (gender, age), etc.
