Abstract

The study aimed to develop models for pedestrian crossings behaviour based on road traffic and human factors. A questionnaire distributed to 663 Shah Alam pedestrians. Respondents were asked to fill out a questionnaire on their perceptions of risks and attitudes concerning walking and road crossings. The modelling analysis showed that there is a significant relationship between the Human Factor and the Crossing Behavior, this study identified two components of the Human Factor that influenced the behaviour of the pedestrian crossing, namely the "risk-taker" and the "rule-follower." Analysis of pedestrian crossings behaviour useful to evaluate the implementation of new pedestrian crossing environments.
