The primary point of conflict and the most prevalent location for crashes between pedestrians and motor vehicles is the intersection. While there are a variety of individual treatments, such as pedestrian signals or turning prohibition signs that may be applied to reduce such conflicts and change behaviors, there are also a few system-level design changes that can be made to alter vehicle paths and speeds and improve conditions for crossing pedestrians.
