Research on Traffic Safety at Tunnel Entrance and Exit


Tunnel entrance and exit
Traffic safety
Improvement measures




Highway tunnel entrances have a high rate of expressway traffic accidents. In this paper, the reasons for the high incidence of traffic accidents at highway tunnel entrances are analyzed in detail, and corresponding solutions are proposed, hoping to provide some reference to relevant parties.
