MORE HUMANE PEDESTRIAN SIGNALS - AN INTERNATIONAL STUDY

HUMANERE FUSSGAENGER-SIGNALE-EINE INTERNATIONALE STUDIE

The development of pedestrian signals with increasing mechanization in many countries has up to the present resulted in humane design and unequivocal signal indications in only a few places, partly due to costs and partly to ignorance. By way of illustration, duesseldorf and some Swiss towns are compared with Cologne and Frankfurt to show how appropriate methods (allowing time and space for pedestrians) leads to an appreciable reduction in accidents to pedestrians, and particularly to schoolchildren and elderly persons, and a humanization of traffic. /TRRL/
