An intersection is a part where two or more roads intersect (intersection). Roads intersect with many roads of different levels, and the methods of intersection are roughly divided into level intersections and grade separations. At-grade intersections are intersections with signals and no signals, and grade separations are intersections. There are grade separations and interchanges[1].

There is a lot of traffic across the road,Traffic accidentIs a point where is likely to occur. 2019% of traffic accidents in 54.9 occur at and near intersections[2][3]..As traffic becomes more generalized and developedtraffic lights,crosswalk,FootbridgeThe number of intersections equipped with various incidental facilities has increased.

In the case of level crossing, if you change direction across the oncoming lane (turn right when passing on the left side), the flow tends to be stagnant, so install a dedicated lane or traffic light on a busy road so as not to obstruct the traffic to the other Be made. On the other hand, even if the vehicle does not cross the oncoming lane (turn left when traveling on the left side), a lane may be provided at an intersection with many crossing pedestrians.

As an at-grade intersection, the roads are connected radially to the circular roundabout.RoundaboutIs also used. Especially when the number of legs is large, it is easy to smooth the flow. It is widespread in Europe.

Especially when there is heavy traffic or the design speed is highMulti-level crossingIs used. The traffic capacity is larger and the safety is higher than the level crossing.General roadIn many cases, only roads with particularly heavy traffic are three-dimensionalized, but at-grade intersections are not provided for all intersecting roads.JunctionThere is also an example.

Types of intersections

  • Three-way junction: An intersection where the destination is divided into two directions. Depending on the shapeJunctionAlso called (T-junction) or Y-junction
  • Four-forked road: An intersection where roads extend in all directions. Two straight roads intersect, and many have no significant acute angles.crossroadsと 呼 ば れ る

範 囲

Traffic accidentIt is necessary to determine which part of the road is an intersection when the occurrence of an intersection, and there are four types of methods for determining the range of an intersection for that purpose.[4][5].

  • Lateral line extension method: The lateral line of the road is extended from the contact point, and the area surrounded by the line is used as the intersection.
  • Vertical start method: A perpendicular line is drawn from the point of contact between roads to the opposite lateral line, and the area surrounded by the line is used as the intersection.
  • Start-end connection method: The intersection is the area surrounded by the lines connecting the points of contact between the roads.
  • Vehicle collision estimation method: The inside of the intersection is the part where vehicles traveling from each road may collide.

Crossroads in the United States

The United States of AmericaAt intersections where all vehicles need to stop, "ALL WAY STOP", "STOP 4-WAY" (for crossroads) or "STOP 3-WAY" (for three-way junctions) are marked.[6].. If only two directions are paused, "STOP 2-WAY" is marked.[6].

When a vehicle that was stopped at an intersection without a traffic light turns green and starts, it is supposed to start in the order in which it entered the intersection and stopped, and if you do not know the future, the vehicle on the right will take precedence. Is[6][7].
