"The objective of this research was to develop an understanding of the safety and operational implications of using the flashing yellow arrow indication to indicate a permitted right turn. Following a comprehensive review of the literature and Oregon crash data, which identified relevant factors such as roadway geometry, traffic, and pedestrian volumes, the research focused on intersections with exclusive right-turning lanes. The research used three key efforts to accomplish these objectives: A web-based survey to understand the comprehension of Oregon drivers of right-turn signal display alternatives...; a microsimulation to explore the operational performance of several protected/permitted right-turn (PPRT) phasing alternatives under varying volumes (right-turn vehicle volumes, conflicting pedestrian movements, and conflicting left-turn vehicular movements...; and a driving simulator experiment to examine motorist behavior in response to right-turn signal displays with two levels of both pedestrian activity and length of turning bays"--Page 1.
