It can be argued that the main thinking in transport planning and policy making stem from neoclassical economics in which individuals are largely assumed to make rational, consistent, and efficient choices, and apply cognitive processes of decision making that maximise their economic utility. Research in behavioural sciences indicates that individuals’(More)
In this work, route-choice simulations and laboratory experiments were conducted in order to evaluate the effect of feedback mechanism on decision-making under uncertainty, with and without provided information about travel times. We discuss the prediction of travellers' response to uncertainty in two route-choice situations. In the first situation(More)
The aim of the reported research was to examine the perceptions of road user safety amongst different road users and examine the link between attitudes, empathy and skill in motorcycle safety behaviour. Motorcyclists were perceived by the study participants, members of the public at four different locations at the UK (including motorcyclists and(More)
Following studies of human decision-making under risk and uncertainty, extensive evidence of loss aversion and asymmetric risk-taking behaviour around a reference point was found. This work presents an investigation of the effect of the reference point value on the stochastic network equilibrium. Prospect Theory, based on empirical experiments, proposes an(More)

Pedestrians are exposed to risks when crossing roads in urban areas. The crossing behaviour of pedestrians was studied as a factor contributing to their exposure to risks on the road and to their involvement in road accidents. This work explores two specific aspects of crossing behaviour: crossing speed and head pitches-the proportion of time pedestrians(More)
