Simply transport or much more?Active mobilityHealthCompact citiesClimate protectionSocial contactsQuality of public spaceQuality of life
Essential ingredient for the transformation of citiesOften wide agreement (a good thing), but tricky when it comes to specific innovative measures

What benefits are in for them?Which tools to apply in your situation? Recommendations for starters, climbers, forerunners?How to institutionalise audits of public space?Possibilities for data collection on pedestrian traffic.
German Institute of Urban AffairsDifu Sebastian BhrmannTIDE Workshop StuttgartBike-pedestrian conflictsWhat are hot spots of conflicts in your cities? Where does it work well to mix?Basic strategy what works?Separation of pedestrians and cyclists? (Move cyclists on the road?)Mixing shared space & co.Encourage mutual respect edcuate peopleControls and sanctionsCan pedestrians and cyclists become allies for neighbourhood mobility?Planning principle: 1. Pedestrians 2. Cyclists 3. Motorised traffic (from the edge to the centre) is this becoming mainstream?

Pedestrians involved in only around six per cent of all accidents in which cyclists were injured. Around 15 per cent of accidents in which pedestrians were injured involved a cyclist.In more than 60 per cent of accidents involving both groups, the cyclist is the main cause. Mainly collisions caused by cycling at inappropriate speeds and abrupt changes in direction. Normally, severity of the accidents is lowPedestrians clearly bear the risk of being hurt in an accident.
Besides that numerous conflicts without injuries as common sources of anger and hostile environment between cyclists and pedestrians

9Pedestrians and cyclists in peak hourAvoid mixed use of sidewalks by cyclists and pedestriansMixing possibleAvailable width (m)Share of cyclists not more than a third of all sidewalk users when high usage
