Assessing Driver Response to Safety Countermeasures in School Zones


School zone safety is an important and emotive issue. School zones operate around school start/end times, on a wide-range of road types often under congested conditions and use a variety of treatments designed to reduce vehicle speeds and improve general safety. This study examines how individual drivers change their behaviour in response to specific treatments.

The study uses a realistic 3D recreation of Darlington, NSW - the suburb in which the lab is located - as the base case with several variations of road treatments tested.


This study is being conducted at the University of Sydney.
