Factors shaping pedestrians' unsafe behaviour at actively protected level crossings

Stefanova, Teodora S. (2016) Factors shaping pedestrians' unsafe behaviour at actively protected level crossings. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


The main objective of this research program was to contribute to a better understanding of pedestrian behaviour at active level crossings, where collisions with trains are a major issue worldwide and in Australia. Articulating both, systems-based and traditional individual-centred methods in psychology, this research contributed to a greater theoretical and practical understanding into the origins of unsafe behaviour at crossings. A new tool called Pedestrian Unsafe Level Crossing (PULC), was developed and has provided direction for the proactive analysis of unsafe pedestrian behaviour at level crossings and for the development of effective countermeasures against it.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
