This webinar will provide extensive collision analyses comparing lagging left-turn arrow and leading left-turn arrow operation. The webinar will also include commentary on the reasons lagging left-turn arrows have a substantially lower collision experience than leading left-turn arrows will be discussed. The webinar will include recent implementation of independent lagging left-turn arrow operation with flashing yellow left-turn arrows. Preliminary collision data for this operation will be provided.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the safety benefits of lagging left-turn arrows.
  • Understand reasons for these lagging left-turn arrow safety benefits.
  • Understand the need for statistical analyses of traffic engineering and operations actions.
  • Learn the benefits of Wilcoxon Ranked-Sum Statistical Analyses.
