TCRP Report 137: Improving Pedestrian and Motorist Safety Along Light Rail Transit Alignments addresses pedestrian and motorist behaviors contributing to light rail transit (LRT) safety and describes mitigating measures available to improve safety along LRT alignments. The report also includes recommendations to facilitate the compilation of accident data in a coordinated and homogeneous manner across LRT systems. Finally, the report provides a catalog of existing and innovative safety devices, safety treatments, and practices to use along LRT alignments. The results of this research may be useful to transit operators, consultants, and state safety oversight agencies.Diagrams of crossing conditions and characteristics depicting roadway/LRT geometry where collisions occur, and collision diagrams illustrating crash experience (a€œcondition diagramsa€ and a€œcollision diagrams, a€ respectively, in MUTCD terminology), can be useful ... additional information classifying the incident and indicating the presence and types of safety features and traffic control devices at the scene.
