Samenvatting With rapid development of road construction and passenger car entering family, it leads to the traveling convenience as well as the serious traffic accidents and greater economic loss in China. Intersection is the traffic accident prone location in city, where car, bicycle and pedestrian conflict at many points. Moreover there's little consideration of the vulnerable road users' right and safety during intersection design and operation, so it is dangerous for bicyclist and pedestrian crossing intersections. Based on mass traffic reports of recent years, the traffic accidents data was classified, character and reasons of vulnerable road users' accidents were analyzed in this paper. Then this research proposed design principles and factors for vulnerable road user's traffic design at intersection considerate the balance between road safety and capacity. Finally an intersection named Da Wanglu was selected as an example to illustrate how to realize vulnerable road user's traffic design. For the covering abstract see ITRD E138091.
