Today the design and analysis of traffic intersections is most commonly done using traditional traffic conflict
techniques. In this paper, we compare and combine traditional traffic conflict techniques and axiomatic design theory. Both the conflict techniques and axiomatic design theory are applied to a generic 4-way intersection. Strategies to improve the intersection including separation of space and separation of time are considered. The limitations and implications of conflict techniques, axiomatic design theory, and the two strategies are addressed. Finally, the future implications of this work are discussed.
