The Chi-chi earthquake did great harm in the disaster area. Fortunately we find the street damages of our surveying area were not too severe to maintain their functions in times of earthquake. However, it is still meaningful for a transport planner to evaluate the reliability of residential streets because the main target of planning a residential street network is to restrain through-traffic in this area to ensure safe and comfortable conditions for pedestrians while meeting residential access requirements.
We would like to thank the support of National Science Foundation (NSC 89-2218-E-309-004-) in Taiwan and the International Association of Traffic and Safety Science (IATSS, H266 Research Project) in Japan, as well as the useful comments from Professor Tsukaguchi at the University of Ritsumeikan Japan which are appreciated very much.
