Samenvatting This thesis consists of a study about intersection designs, namely the roundabout, priority intersection and the pleintje. Pleintjes are a new type of intersection, which has recently been re-introduced and is now being build more and more as an alternative to the roundabout and priority intersection. However, this has lead to numerous discussions and questions about the use of this intersection, mainly because of a general lack of knowledge about the pleintjes functioning in practice. With more municipalities (considering) building pleintjes in their town, some interest appears to have a study about the pleintjes. This study makes use of this, by analyzing not only the pleintjes, but also comparing them to a priority intersection and a roundabout. In order to compare these three intersections criteria have been selected, namely traffic safety, traffic flow and environment. (Author/publisher)
