This webinar will discuss the results of a study that evaluated driver behavior at rural stop-controlled intersection using the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) Naturalistic Driving Study. The overarching goal was to better understand how drivers react at rural intersections. Analyses were conducted that looked at the point at which drivers reacted to intersections, stopping behavior at intersections, and driver behaviors surrounding safety critical events.
