Traffic Planning with and for Children
The continual rise in private motor vehicle (PMVs) traffic volumes makes road use increasingly dangerous for children. On the one hand, safe road use requires physical and mental abilities that are not yet fully developed in children - such as auditory and visual perpeption, risk awareness or powers of concentration. On the other hand, the places where children live and spend their time are being dissected by barriers like busy roads. This restricts children's options to be independently mobile and reduces their active use of the roads.
