Subject level crossings; pedestrians; cyclist; traffic safety
 
Description Level crossings (LCs) are points of conflict between rail and road traffic. Therefore, from the aspect of safety they are potentially high-risk traffic points. Traffic participants at LCs are pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, car drivers and locomotive drivers. The behaviour of traffic participants represents the main cause of traffic accidents at LCs. Most research examining road users’ behaviour at LCs has focused on car drivers and there are few studies dedicated to pedestrians and cyclists, especially in Croatia. Cyclists are often treated like pedestrians but cyclists can travel much faster than pedestrians, which can cause unexpected behaviour. The paper gives an overview of the existing cycling features in the City of Zagreb and the statistics of accidents on LCs in the Republic of Croatia. Also, through a review of the major recent studies on the behaviour of pedestrians and cyclists at railroad crossings, the trends have been presented as well as the results of research. The review paper will serve as the basis for further research of design, traffic safety and the behaviour of pedestrians and cyclists, and their correlation at the LCs in the Republic of Croatia.
