Abstract
Introduction. The actual problem in Russia is the accident rate at pedestrian crossings. The authors conduct the research about the lighting conditions on unregulated pedestrian crossings to improve safety and to identify compliance with current regulations. Moreover, International and Russian researchers point out a large role in ensuring visibility of pedestrians. Increasing of the roadway lightness improves the visibility of pedestrians at night, especially at pedestrian crossings. In addition, world practice shows that after improving the road lighting the number of accidents with pedestrians decreases.Materials and methods. The authors selected unregulated ...
