Abstract: India is a developing nation which faces different traffic issues. Among which side friction is one of the serious issues in many urban communities. Side friction can be characterized as every one of the exercises which are going on or alongside the roadway office, it incorporates moderate moving vehicles, roadside seller, on-street parking, walker intersections, inappropriate bus stops, and so on so this paper is for the most part centered around how improper bus stop areas influences the capacity and speed-flow for urban roads. The present work goes for breaking down the effect of roadside frictions on traffic attributes of urban streets in India. The investigation was led on urban streets in a portion of the thickly populated urban communities. The side friction elements were restricted to improper stops. We have conducted a floating car method from Yelahanka NES to Banashankari. From this survey, we got the congestion index value. Along with this we have also conducted a spot speed survey at both ideal and non-ideal bus stops and got the modal speed. The outcome demonstrated that there was a noteworthy effect of side friction on vehicular speed on urban streets and could likewise realize the degree of the effect of individual factors on speed. The outcomes feature the need to incorporate side friction factors on all traffic-related examinations for appropriate planning of urban street.
