The purpose of this investigation was to determine which intersection operational characteristics could be altered to accommodate age-related changes. Two key driver issues were examined in order to identify the specific older driver problems and then to make recommendations for changes to current standards, including left-turn signalization comprehension, and traffic signal responses and stopping behavior.
