Title:
Enhancing a Safety Performance Function-based Safety Assessment using a Microsimulation Approach 
Abstract:
This study developed an enhanced crash prediction model incorporating simulated rear-end conflicts. Despite advances in crash predictive models such as Safety Performance Functions in Highway Safety Manual, accurate prediction of crash frequencies is still challenging due to limited crash data and microscopic intersection operational characteristics (e.g., traffic signal controls, lane configurations, and driver aggressiveness) not being considered. On the other hand, the simulated conflict-bas...    »
