Driver behaviour affects traffic safety. One of important driver behaviour is lane changing behaviour. In a multi lanes-two ways divided road, lane changing behaviour is more important than overtaking behaviour. This is due to the availability of sufficient number of lanes in each direction to change lane without the need to return to the original lane. Research on this area in Indonesia was still very limited. Therefore in this paper the lane changing behaviour on a six lanes-two ways divided urban freeway will be discussed. A 24 hours observation was carried out in urban freeway segment adjacent Let. Jen. S. Parman arterial road, in front of the West Jakarta Courthouse. A video camera was installed in a nearby pedestrian crossing bridge to record 24 hours traffic movement in the Grogol-Slipi direction of the freeway. Desk observation was then carried out by playing back the video in the computer. For each type of vehicle, i.e. light vehicle and heavy vehicle, the number of several movements were recorded every 15 minutes period. These movements include lane changing to the left, lane changing to the right, overtaking from the left and overtaking from the right. The percentages of each type of movement relative to the number of vehicle for each vehicle type for every 15 minutes period were then be calculated. The Pearson correlations between these percentages and volume to capacity ratio (V/C) were calculated.
