A Look at Pedestrian and Vehicle Interaction at Unsignalized Intersections

by Sean Whiteman

For my research, I observed and analyzed the pedestrian and vehicular interactions at unsignalized intersections in State College. I collected at 5 different intersections to determine the likelihood of vehicles to stop for pedestrian waiting to cross based on a variety of different variables including wait time. This data can provide significant data to the borough's transportation department to help implement new practices to improve the efficiency of traffic flow in the area.
