Pedestrians are vulnerable transport participants, and their movement analysis is always an up-to-date issue. The paper tries to present the zebra crossing without traffic lights (in the following un-signalized) on one-way one-lane roads. The video opened up new dimension to evaluate some parameters (gap time, speed distribution). The measured and the estimated parameters were used in the simulations. With help of the simulation the paper aims are to analyze the influence of pedestrians and cars on crossing movements. The paper describes that the relationship between delay, volume and pedestrian volume could justify the establishment of the signalized control.
