Hwang, Jung Hoon ;
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 32, issue 3, 2014, Pages 179~186
DOI : 10.7470/jkst.2014.32.3.179
This study attempted to identify the characteristics of transfer trips between subways and buses in Daegu city and to analyze various impact factors that influence the number of transfer trips using a multiple regression analysis. Based on the results, this study aims to propose some policy implications to improve the operation efficiency of a transit center. As a result, it is found that the number of transfer trips is inversely proportional to transfer time, while directly proportional to the number of connected bus routes, subway`s spatial location, and bus route connection index. Specifically, it is found that the number of transfer trips are mostly affected by bus route connection index.

Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 32, issue 3, 2014, Pages 187~197
DOI : 10.7470/jkst.2014.32.3.187
The objective of this study is to analyze the travel behaviors of customers accessing to three different types of shopping facilities - traditional markets(TM), hyper markets(HM), and super supermarkets(SSM) - and also to find out the most desirable location for each type of shopping facilities that encourage sustainable transportation and smart urban growth. It also demonstrates what mode has the highest percentage of modal split and what is the access distance for public transport mode by each shopping facilities (SSM: 84.5% walking and 667m, TM: 20.1% bus and 1.6km, HM : 46.2% private car and 4.2km). Among TM, HM, and SSM, statistically significant differences are found in terms of mode choices and other associated travel behaviors. The research findings are expected to contribute to finding future urban planning and transportation solutions that promote walking and public transit uses for shopping trips and thus help support green transportation and sustainable urban growth.

According to the statistics of the National Police Agency, red light running (RLR) crashes represent a significant safety issue throughout Korea. This study deals with the RLR crashes occurred at signalized intersections in Cheongju. The objectives of this study are to comparatively analyze the characteristics of between RLR crashes and the Non-RLR crashes, and to find out factors using a Binary Logistic Regression(BLR) model. In pursuing the above, the study gives particular attentions to testing the differences between the above two groups with the data of 2,246 RLR/ 3,884 Non-RLR crashes (2007-2011). The main results are as follows. First, many RLR crashes were occurred in the nighttime and in going straight. Second, the difference between RLR and Non-RLR crashes were clearly defined by crash type, maneuver of vehicle before crash, age of driver (30s, 50s), alcohol use and accident pattern. Finally, a statistically significant model (Hosmer and Lemeshow test : 7.052, p-value : 0.531) was developed through the BLR model.
A Study on the Development of a Structural Equation Model between the Driver`s Negative Emotion and Driving Behavior Based on Emotion Regulation Strategies

Many a number of policies have been tried to reduce auto accidents so far, but it is obvious that further studies are still needed to find a more fundamental and multi-dimensional preventive measure with effect. The National Mental Health Statistics shows that the most profound forms of negative emotions, that is, depression and anxiety, have been increasing, but studies on such a topic are scarce to find. Therefore, we conducted a structural analysis between the negative emotions, including depression and anxiety, of drivers and their driving behaviors using a Structural Equation Modeling(SEM) technique. The review of past literature and studies indicated that not all of human emotions manifest themselves as the ultimate behaviors because they go through emotion regulation Strategies. For this reason, the purpose of this study was set to analyze the structural model developed in this study reflecting the emotion regulation strategies. The result of our analysis showed that the driver`s negative emotion had a more significant influence on dangerous driving behaviors than safe ones, and especially, the expressive suppression strategy was found to be the highest factor. Also, the total effect analysis with the negative emotional factors showed that expressive suppression had more significant influence compared to that of cognitive reappraisal. The implication of this study might provide a better understanding on driving behaviors of the drivers and could be used as a fundamental study for future policy development to reduce traffic accidents.
An Analysis of the Vehicular Delay Caused by Scrambled Crosswalk Installation in a Roundabout
Kang, Sung In ; Lee, Young Woo ;

DOI : 10.7470/jkst.2014.32.3.218
This study examines a way to install a crosswalk that can improve pedestrians` convenience and safety and that goes beyond the crosswalk design standard of existing roundabouts. When a scrambled crosswalk, one of the crosswalk installation methods, is introduced to the roundabout system, it shortens the cross-walking distance of pedestrians and thus enhances convenience. Although the installation of a scrambled crosswalk may enhance pedestrians` convenience, it may obstruct vehicular traffic. Thus, this study presents standards for reasonable diagonal crosswalk installation based on the investigation on its effects on a vehicle`s delay time. This study includes an analysis of the various geometric structures of roundabouts. The study results show that as v/c and the number of pedestrians increased, the delay time after the installation of a scrambled crosswalk increased although the extent was different. In general, the effect of the installation of a scrambled crosswalk was insignificant regardless of the number of pedestrians when v/c was under 0.6. When the number of pedestrians was 300/hour or lower, the difference in the delay time was quite insignificant regardless of v/c. In addition, as the inscribed circle of the roundabout was larger, the difference in the delay time decreased depending on v/c and the number of pedestrians.

There is no question that railroad investment is crucial for better transport systems and the Korean government has continued to invest in railroad facilities. Nevertheless, the modal share of railroad, in particular, for freight has decreased. This is because rail freight transport can hardly meet customer needs such as just-in-time(JIT), a door-to-door service, compared to road transport, to be specific, trucking which can directly carry the freights to the final destinations. This has made the value of the railroad infrastructure less, which has been operated for the past 114 years. This study proposes a new freight movement concept called Piggy Back System. This system can carry freight trucks on the trains and deliver the freights to the final destinations. It can make a door-to-door deliver system possible for railroad transportation, which is the key factor for modal shift from road to railroad. For implementing this, this study proposes three important things: the cost-efficient reforming way of railroad yard that has been used for the past 114 years, the diagram plan of train services, and some technical reviews like clearance limits. This is the first study with practical proposals and solutions on this topic in Korea. The suggestions of this study cut down distribution costs by more than seven trillion won.

In modern society, the transportation sector is having difficulties with mobility, safety, energy and environment issues so that solutions should be prepared progressively. Recently developed countries are paying greater attention to car-sharing systems as alternatives for relieving problems caused by increasing number of vehicles. Car-sharing systems are believed to keep the number of personal vehicles down and traffic congestion due to the fact that this system induces efficiency of vehicle operation. In this study, authors focused on solving the imbalance problem of car-sharing systems dynamically, to specifically improve one-way car sharing service. Therefore vehicle relocation algorithm was designed for maximizing profit of car sharing operators. For the application of the vehicle relocation algorithm among rental offices, we selected Haeundae-gu, Busan as the area of study. Rental offices have been designated to the zone centroid and we calculated the shortest path between rental offices by using TransCAD. In the study, we adapted MATLAB for the application of vehicle relocation algorithm. As the results, the total vehicle relocation time was estimated as 59.9 minutes. In addition, vehicle relocation algorithm was verified successfully by using Decision Tree method.

Though the Platform Screen Door System (PSD) has received a positive evaluation and is installed in all the Urban Railroad platforms, PSD is not installed in the Intercity Railroad platforms. The limitation of PSD in the Intercity Railroad platforms is due to the fact that first, various types of trains such as KTX, Saemaeul, Mugunghwa, and Nuriro stop at the platforms and their locations of the doors are different and secondly, they are not operated under ATO (automatic train operation). RPSD system currently under research and development, on the other hand, is based on the improved door that slides up and down and can be installed in any Intercity Railroad platform regardless of the length of the train, the location of doors, and the number of doors. This study considers the mechanism of RPSD, develops a manual open/close algorithm, and evaluates the function of RPSD. The results show that the manual open/close algorithm achieves a significant improvement in efficiency when provided with power supply.

A sudden increase of old people`s free urban railway transportation resulted from the acceleration of aging trend causes the chronic deficit. As continuous deficit caused by the free urban railway transportation of old people is expected, a fairness problem about the fare system of using public transportation is issued because only the urban railway provides free-rides to them, which is contrast to bus-riders paying full payments. Therefore, the study intends to draw an alternate to solve the problem of the free urban transportation uses by calculating an appropriate fare ratio between the two transportation modes, which is expected to alleviate the fairness issue between the urban railway and the bus.

For the evaluation of roadway safety, diverse methods, including before-after studies, simple comparison using historic traffic accident data, methods based on experts` opinion or literature, have been applied. Especially, many research efforts have developed traffic accident prediction models in order to identify critical elements causing accidents and evaluate the level of safety. A traffic accident prediction model must secure predictability and transferability. By acquiring the predictability, the model can increase the accuracy in predicting the frequency of accidents qualitatively and quantitatively. By guaranteeing the transferability, the model can be used for other locations with acceptable accuracy. To this end, traffic accident prediction models using non-linear regression, artificial neural network, and structural equation were developed in this study. The predictability and transferability of three models were compared using a model development data set collected from 90 signalized intersections and a model validation data set from other 33 signalized intersections based on mean absolute deviation and mean squared prediction error. As a result of the comparison using the model development data set, the artificial neural network showed the highest predictability. However, the non-linear regression model was found out to be most appropriate in the comparison using the model validation data set. Conclusively, the artificial neural network has a strong ability in representing the relationship between the frequency of traffic accidents and traffic and road design elements. However, the predictability of the artificial neural network significantly decreased when the artificial neural network was applied to a new data which was not used in the model developing.

A tram has been the focus of a new public transportation that can solve a traffic jam, decreasing of public transit usage and environmental problem in recent years. This study aims to develop a signal optimization model for considering the traffic signal progression of tram and vehicles, when they are operated simultaneously in the same signalized intersections. This research developed the KS-SIGNAL-Tram model to obtain a minimum tram bandwidth and to minimize a vehicle`s delay to perform a tram passive signal priority, it is based on the KS-SIGNAL model and is added to the properties of a tram and it`s system. We conducted a micro simulation test to evaluate the KS-SIGNAL-Tram model, it showed that the developed optimization model is effective to prevent a tram`s stop on intersection, to reduce a tram`s travel time and vehicle`s delay.
