traffic lights on (i.e. TL) and after switching over to different TL control modes at low traffic volumes. Different traffic movements at the intersection were monitored at multiple locations for verification and comparison purposes. Based on the results, it is evident that in terms of delay times, any active TL mode used at low traffic volumes is rather counterproductive. Also, environmental impacts (CO2 emissions, CO, NOX) tend to grow in the active TL mode. The article
also presents the analysis of several model examples using micro analysis software and quantifies the above parameters. The last part brings the initial design of conditions under which TL switching off may be applied. Basic design and traffic engineering characteristics
are identified and their effect on the TL control mode is described.
