Abstract

Road user obidience on traffic regulation, such as road crossing on designated facilities depends on various factors. One factor might be the easiness to use the facilities. Pedestrian bridge in front of Tarumanagara University, Jakarta was not used by all pedestrian to cross Jl. S. Parman. A relatively small number of illegal road crossing was existed. Appart from limited law enforcement conducted by the police, there might be several reasons for choosing between using pedestrian bridge to cross or carry out illegal road crossing. In this paper some possible reasons were observed, i.e. gender, physical body shape (fat or slim) as a proxy for physical barrier to use pedestrian bridge, volume to capacity ratio (V/C) as a proxy for barrier to carry out illegal road crossing, etc. Traffic counting for both vehicles (classified into light vehicles, motorcycles and heavy vehicles), and pedestrian (crossing using pedestrian bridge and crossing ilegally) were conducted in every 5 minutes period during morning, noon and afternoon counting periods. Road capacity was calculated based on Indonesian Highway Capacity Manual (IHCM) 1997. The data was then analyzed to test wheter there is significant correlation between V/C and number of legal and illegal crossing per 5 minutes period. To assess the effect of gender and physical body shape to the choice of road crossing method, some comparison analysis was conducted between different gender and different physical body shape. The result shows that V/C was not an important reason to affect road crossing method choice. Over weight female tend to conduct illegal crossing, especially in the afternoon. Security reason might avoid this group of people to use pedestrian bridge together with physical barrier.
