A driver’s time of stay in traffic jams leads to an increase in his/her psycho-emotional condition, an increase in the level of fatigue, and, therefore, to a decrease in failure-free operation. The level of a driver’s failure-free operation directly affects road safety. The driver’s failure-free operation within the elements of a transport system determines the probability of a traffic accident, which depends not only on the network parameters and traffic flows but, first of all, on the response time of the driver.</p><p>We have developed models for assessing a driver’s failure-free operation along the sections of a transport network and transport nodal points taking into account traffic jams. They have made it possible to assess the probability of a traffic accident for the average driver. The models take into consideration the impact of a traffic jam by changing the response time of a driver, which is a function of changing the level of fatigue.</p><p>To determine by how many times the probability of a traffic accident for the average driver along the sections of a transport network and in traffic nodes with a traffic jam exceeds the same probability along the same elements of the transport system without traffic jams, we considered the ratio of the probabilities.</p><p>The adequacy of the models has been verified by comparing the ratio of the probabilities of a traffic accident with the traffic jam along the sections of a transport network and without it to the corresponding ratio of the number of traffic accidents along the same sections of a transport network and at intersections.</p><p>The developed models that take into account traffic jams for assessing a driver’s failure-free operation along the elements of a transport network make it possible to compare and evaluate various project solutions to improve road safety</p>}, number={3 (103)}, journal={Eastern-European Journal of Enterprise Technologies}, author={Gyulyev, Nizami and Voronko, Vitalii and Ostashevskiy, Sergij and Ponkratov, Denys and Psol, Sergij and Bugayov, Igor}, year={2020}, month={Feb.}, pages={24–38} }
