FACTORS INFLUENCING DRIVER’S BEHAVIOUR AT INTERSECTIONS CROSSED BY THE TRAM

by the tram, do drivers perceive and identify road situations, change in them, and the regulating actions they imply. We consider the causes of driver’s operational error as the first step in a chain of actions, which may proceed to unwanted events. This paper describe our methodology for the analysis of driver behavior in real driving conditions, involving two techniques: the observation and measurement of two intersections crossed by tram at Rabat city,
which were selected according to the number of collision and related incidents that occurred there combined with an assessment of the driver’s behaviour during a journey made from within the vehicle itself. The merits of such an approach are highlighted and the main results are discussed and interpreted.
