This program of research had two primary aims:
- Conduct an in-depth analysis of pedestrians’ decision making processes that contribute (and have the greatest impact) upon making errors as well as deliberately taking risks on railway crossings (human factors); and observable behaviour (video tracking) on railway crossings.
- Identify a set of recommendations on strategies to increase pedestrians’ awareness of risks associated with railway crossings; and to increase pedestrians’ compliance with rules at railway crossings.
