Abstract

The aim of this study is to estimate the roadway capacity for the observed conditions and the hypothetical scenarios of different driving compliance levels at different posted speed limits. Simulation helps to understand how a validated simulation model behaves dynamically over time and space for a given duration. Thereafter, the roadway capacity values are compared to study the impact of driving compliance. In the last section, the effect on the travel times for the cars are studied at different driving compliance levels.
