A car park design guide has been published by Birmingham City Council. The guide is the result of a survey of 525 women motorists undertaken at three car parks in December 1990, and a follow up three year study. The study involved community groups, the West Midlands police, and local authority staff. The emphasis in the design guide is on safety design features for: car park layout; security systems; accessibility; and lighting. Recent safety initiatives undertaken in Birmingham are outlined.
