Sight distance at at-grade intersections

Dražen Cvitanić, Ana Vujasinović, Tatjana Stazić

Abstract

The issue of sight distance at at-grade road intersections is analyzed. Traffic safety problems are quite pronounced at road intersections, and the sight distance is considered as one of the most important requirements for definition of a good-quality intersection design. Various influences on sight distance at road intersections are described, and methods used in Croatia and the USA to define the necessary sight distance are presented. Relevant regulations are compared, and shortcomings of Croatian regulations, namely sight distance for turning manoeuvre to access the main flow of traffic, are presented.

Keywords
traffic safety, turning, Croatian regulations, USA regulations, at-grade intersection, sight distance
