Cities (especially in Central and Eastern Europe) focus on improving the road network, which aims to improve the efficiency of motor traffic and minimize congestion. Most of existing tools for analysing the effectiveness of urban transport networks do not assume to analyse the impact of walking and cycling on efficiency of transport systems. It is therefore necessary to develop solutions that on the one hand will reduce congestion, and on the other hand, improve the safety and quality of travel of vulnerable road users. One of the tasks to be developed in order to improve pedestrian conditions is to determine the relationship between pedestrian and vehicle traffic. An attempt has been made to establish the relationship between pedestrians and vehicle traffic in order to describe traffic conditions and pedestrian safety at pedestrian crossings. The analyses were based on simulations carried out using the PTV Vissim/Viswalk software and with the use of surrogate safety measures.
