evolution of research on pedestrians themes topics
Evolution of research on pedestriansThemes & topics
  • Safety of crossing- crosswalk design, guardrails, behaviour, visibility, risks, training, countermeasures
  • Pedestrian needs- sidewalk standards, furniture, comfort, bus stops, individual differences, demographics, old- young
  • Walking as transport- travel behaviour, access, links with cycles and public transport, VRU
  • Pedestrians’ Rights!- safe walking, clean air, less noise, speed controls, calming zones, by-passes
  • Urban planning should be for pedestrians- urban landscape for walkers, quality of urban environment, distribution of amenities, connectivity, pedestrian- only zones, social impact
  • Walking is a healthy lifestyle- promotion, re-think urban design of work- school- shop- social- recreation mix

professions involved in research
Professions involved in research
  • Safety of crossing- crosswalk design, guardrails, behaviour, visibility, risks, training: Traffic Engineers, psychologists, accident analysts, risk analysts, “safety experts”
  • Pedestrian needs- sidewalk standards, street furniture, comfort, bus stops: Ergonomics, architects, Soc. Science,
  • Walking as transport- travel behaviour, VRU, accessibility, link with public transport, : Transport planners, urban geography,
  • Pedestrians’ Rights!- quality environment, speed controls, calming zones, by-passes: road- traffic- environment Eng
  • Urban planning should be for pedestrians- urban landscape for walkers, quality of urban environment, distribution of amenities, connectivity, green- islands: town planners, policy DM
  • Walking is a healthy lifestyle- promotion: Public Health

the logical way of understanding pedestrian safety

Look at

: Preconditions

travel need, Land Use, legislation,

social organization

Look at: Latent accident causes

i.e.: routes, road design, management and

maintenance, adjacent buildings, vehicles,

time

-

space, knowledge,

Look at: Traffic

behaviour

individual traffic behavior of wheeled

traffic and crossing pedestrians

The “logical” way of understanding pedestrian safety

the way pedestrian research actually evolved

Look at : Preconditions

travel need, Land Use, legislation, social organization

Look at: Underlying factors

routes, road design, management and maintenance, adjacent buildings, vehicles time -space

Look at: Traffic behaviour

a socio political perspective on pedestrian research agendas
A socio- political perspective on pedestrian researchAgendas
  • Conflicts about sharing the road in time & space
    • Regulating pedestrians
    • Separating pedestrians from vehicles
    • Regulating vehicles
  • Gaining recognition for walking as a transport mode
  • Protecting the physically and socially weak
  • Claiming a fair share of the given urban territory for people doing other things than driving or parking
  • Shaping the whole urban landscape for walking people
  • Creating an integrated policy of land use, urban planning, transport, and sustained environment, with pedestrians’ interests at its core
