Abstract

Pedestrian road crossing have a major subject in mixed traffic floe condition. Mostly at that point where no control for pedestrian path crossing. The active adults are able to cross the road safely, where as the very young or child and the very old are not at mid block section or location. In these days motor vehicle growth are increase very well, but regulation of pedestrian is neglected. Road characteristics that can influence pedestrian accidents include geometrics features of the road, design of intersections, traffic control devices, street lighting, color of the road surface and footway design. Pedestrian accident rates are high during week days when the traffic flow is heavy. The pedestrians constitute 46 percent of the fatalities from road accidents. These figure indicate the seriousness of the pedestrian safety problem. Mixed traffic system also creats lot of problem some time cattle and ricksaw stay in video recording line. More time auto driver stopped at marked crossing area for loading and unloading for passengers. Every pedestrian who wishes to cross a road looks for a safe gap in the traffic stream. He rejects gaps which are too short and thus too risky and waits for a suitable gap which he feels would be safe for crossing with a large gap, say 7 seceonds, the pedestrian can cross a 6 meter carriageway safely.
