New research from Victoria Walks, Australia, finds that a lack of pedestrian crossings is the top concern for pedestrians in Melbourne. Over 1,650 people recorded their perceptions of walking safety through an interactive online map survey. The top three issues/concerns used to describe unsafe spots recorded on the map were:
1. No pedestrian crossing (20.6%)
2. Drivers failing to give way when turning (14.2%)
3. Traffic light issues e.g. long wait for the green man (12.2%).
