Pedestrians are vulnerable road user. Pedestrian safety is an important concern for planners and engineers in developed as well as developing countries. Approaching this concern requires a complete understanding of the numerous factors affecting it, including urban planning and design, law enforcement, driver and pedestrian behavior and education, as well as pedestrian needs. Pedestrians are facing problems while crossing at unsignalized intersection under mixed traffic condition. Risk of

A clear understanding of pedestrian transport interaction under mixed traffic conditions is required for providing necessary infrastructure and conjointly for rising pedestrian safety. This project tries to seek out the interaction between pedestrian and vehicle, vehicle approaching speed, vehicle count, pedestrian crossing speed and pedestrian volume count at Alagarkovil road under mixed traffic condition. It's determined that the pedestrians have great issue in crossing as most of the drivers don't look after the waiting pedestrians. The pedestrian sought to expect a protracted time before finding somebody who is willing to prevent for them to permit them to cross or wait till there aren't any additional vehicles shut enough. This project examines all possible parameters that causes accidents and to design the preventive measure for improving the safety of the pedestrian and also help to reduce the pedestrian vehicular interaction under mixed traffic condition.
