Shared Space Survey

Chris strongly believes that shared space schemes which minimize demarcations between vehicles and pedestrians are dangerous. Shared space schemes remove features such as curbs, road surface markings, traffic signs, controlled crossings and regulations. In the UK, shared space schemes are increasing with many local authorities planning new schemes despite the inherent difficulties. Blind and partially sighted people have particular difficulties with the schemes but this survey also aims to generate evidence from other groups, such as other pedestrians and drivers who, anecdotally, talk of serious concerns when driving in these spaces. Thank you very much if you can spare five minutes to answer the survey.
