Abstract

This research study's objective was to define the standards that road safety auditors rely on when auditing signalized intersection. Further, the research study aimed to determine the safety indicators used by specialists in evaluating existing hubs and prioritizing countermeasures. Additionally, the study explored gaps in the decision-making process, which often ignored safety concerns. The research study was divided into two phases. Notably, phase one was based on qualitative analysis in which statistical analysis of traffic crashes at the signalized section was conducted. The Poisson Regression Model was utilized in this case. The second phase of the research was based on the qualitative analysis in which interviews were conducted based on the statistical analysis results obtained in phase one. Here, interviews were conducted by the corresponding author on ten certified road safety auditors in Abu Dhabi. In the interviews, the study subjects were queried on several aspects such as the general information regarding their careers as auditors and the decision-making process typically effected at a signalized intersection in Abu Dhabi. The study participants also explored the significance of some of the variables identified in phase one of the research. The objective here was to validate the outcomes obtained in phase one of the research work and highlight the experience required to enhance road safety by auditors. The variables identified in phase one of the qualitative analysis are highlighted in Table 1, Table 2, and Table 3 in the qualitative research.
