SECTION 1



PEDESTRIAN




A pedestrian is a person travelling on foot,
whether walking or running. In modern times,
the term mostly refers to someone walking on
a road or footpath, but this was not the case
historically.




PEDESTRIANISATION



Efforts are underway by pedestrian advocacy
groups to restore pedestrian access to new
developments, especially to counteract newer
developments where 20 to 30 percent do not
include sidewalks.

Some activists advocate large auto-free zones
where pedestrians only or pedestrians and some
non motorised vehicles are allowed.

In urban design, walkability is the measure
of the overall walking conditions in an area.

Factors which are commonly part of walkability
indices include land use mix, street connectivity,
residential density (residential units per area of
residential use), orientation and placement of
homes and buildings to watch over the street,
plenty of places to go to near the majority of
homes, street designs that work for people, not
just cars and retail floor area ratio.


Other factors which
are also believed to affect
walkability include:

access to mass transit,
presence and quality sidewalks,
buffers to moving traffic
(planter strips,
on-street parking or bike lanes)
pedestrian crossings,
aesthetics,
nearby local destinations,
air quality,
street furniture,
traffic flow,
wind conditions.

CAR-FREE
ZONES




Car-free zones (also known as auto-free
zones and pedestrianised zones) are areas
of a city or town in which any automobile
traffic is prohibited.

They are instituted by communities who feel
that it is desirable to have areas not
dominated by the automobile. Converting a
street or an area to car-free use is called
pedestrianization.
