Abstract

As a result of literature analysis the authors identified the main directions of the road improvement problem study and determined that further research needs the identification elements, which can improve the visual and functional nature of the road. Among the elements of road improvement is distinguished a separate broad group - identification elements, which includes natural objects, historical and cultural monuments and recreational areas. Are revealed the factors influence on the road environment visual perception and the main properties of the road space perception. The authors’ studies made it possible to formulate the main requirements for the road space and to propose the principles of calculating the distances between the points of stop along the highways.

Keywords: identification elements, road environment, visual perception, traffic conditions
