Users of Unsignalized Intersections
Throughout the UIIG, reference is made to “users” of unsignalized intersections. In general, any individual who traverses an unsignalized intersection can be cast into one of three primary groups:
Additionally, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities provides guidance on the design of bicycle facilities, but this publication is available only in hardcopy form through the AASHTO website.
- Bicycle Countermeasure Selection System (BIKESAFE)—a website that provides the latest information available for improving the safety and mobility of those who bicycle.
- Bicycle Road Safety Audit Guidelines and Prompt Lists—a document that explains how to conduct a road safety audit focused on safety issues for bicyclists.
- Non-Motorized User Safety: A Manual for Local Rural Road Owners—a manual that describes a process to address the safety of non-motorized users on low-volume rural roadways.
Additional information can be found in the Pedestrian Safety Guide and Countermeasure System (PEDSAFE), which provides the latest information available on engineering, enforcement, and education treatments to improve pedestrian safety and mobility based on user input about a specific location. See also the UIIG’s ADA and Pedestrian Considerations for information on how persons with disabilities are to be accommodated at unsignalized intersections.
