    Abstract

    Traditional gap acceptance functions have been estimated based on the first gap observed. In this paper we show that the critical gap of drivers is decreasing on the average, as they are waiting for an acceptable gap. Our gap acceptance function is based on a probit model which assumes a normal distribution of gaps across gaps and drivers.
