The aim of this paper is to investigate driver behaviour in order to develop a method for improving micro-and macrosimulation traffic models with a particular focus on traffic calming solutions. Therefore, speed profiles were calculated, a PTv vissim model was created, and an attempt to estimate volume-delay functions was made. Driver behaviour was modelled on the basis of video recordings of traffic in traffic-calmed links. speed profiles were divided into parts where the speed is influenced with the traffic calming and not, and speed distributions were calculated in order to be used in vissim. vissim microsimulation was tested on various traffic volumes, with various traffic compositions, in order to identify the relationship between traffic flow and travel time.
