Perceptions of Priority Rules at Pedestrian Crossings by Pedestrians and Drivers - 2004 (893kb)
This study aimed to determine people's points of view about 'right of way' and if these vary according to whether the person identified with the driver or pedestrian role. While study results suggest no systematic differences in respondents' views about 'right of way' depending on the role with which they identified, results do indicate that there may be some confusion regarding 'right of way' at some crossing types and road treatments. The study was recently completed by the School of Psychology at the University of Sydney.
