Abstract

This paper suggests a methodology for analyzing drivers' behavior at high speed (over 35 mph), isolated intersections in order to assess the length and location of the ″dilemma zone.″ The dilemma refers to the drivers' decisions to proceed through the intersection or to stop when the signal indication changes from green to amber. Driver behavior is modeled as a binary decision (stop or go). The zone boundaries were established in deterministic terms, based mainly on vehicle performance characteristics.
