    In road accident research, judgements of overall resemblance between accident cases are sometimes used in order to group similar instances and to describe corresponding accident scenarios. This note deals with the degree of agreement among experts regarding such judgements of resemblance and...

    Compared to a typical one-way multi-lane highway, a one-way divided highway operated, for instance, in the form of two two-lanes instead of four lanes may have an advantage on safety more than operation. In congested traffic conditions, drivers would change lanes into less heavy lanes. Frequent...

    On-line response dynamic traffic management system (DTMS) seems to be the key solution for resolving many and the most important traffic problems in urban areas. Commonly used on-line response DTMS consists of on-road equipment (detectors, variable message signs etc.) and computer aided system....
