Effects of right-turn lanes on driveway sight distance Zeidan, George R ; McCoy, Patrick T

By: Zeidan, George RContributor(s): McCoy, Patrick TPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2000Description: nr 1737, s. 78-83Subject(s): USA | Visibility distance | Junction | Right turn | Traffic lane | Design speed | Location | Vehicle | 31Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1737Location: Abstract: Vehicles entering a driveway from an exclusive right-turn lane may restrict the sight distance available to vehicles waiting to enter the arterial street from the driveway. The sight distance available to the vehicles waiting at a driveway is a function of the geometric design of the driveway and the right-turn lane. The relationship between available sight distance and the relevant geometric design variables is examined. The analysis identifies geometrics that provide adequate sight distances for various design speeds.
