The paper is mainly concerned with the traffic jams caused by traffic lights at intersections. Based on ergonomic principles, we comprehensively analyze the causes, establish a man–vehicle-environment comprehensive model by the analysis of behavior of drivers waiting at the traffic lights, vehicle and environment factor, find out the influence of the rate factors, and build a mathematical model. Through the numerical analysis put forward, an approach to keep a safe vehicle waiting distance at traffic lights with the consideration of the psychology and the behavior characteristics of the drivers was developed, which thereby can increase the vehicle passing rate at the traffic light junctions. And by setting the scene model, the feasibility of this method is verified.
