Tóm tắt

Red-light running (RLR) is the most significant factor involved in traffic crashes and injuries at signalized intersections. In Vietnam, little knowledge of factors affecting RLR has been found. This paper applied an ordered probit model to investigate factors associated with RLR using questionnaire data collected in Hanoi. Generally, this paper found that males and motorcyclists have a higher likelihood of RLR than females and car drivers. In addition, the younger and lower-income road users and the ones who are businessmen and who have a commuting trip in off-peak hours are more likely to run the red light. By contrast, the road users who go to school and the people who understand traffic law are less likely to violate the red light. In the future, it is necessary to collect data in different cities to generalize the results. In addition, may need to apply a more powerful method such as the latent class model, which can discover hidden facts among respondents. In the new model, other factors such as weather, waiting time, and countdown signal will be considered to investigate their effects on RLR.
