Lack of safe crossings top concern for walkers

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%).

And Melbourne isn't the only place where crossing the road causes concern for people walking. Missing pedestrian signals are in the spotlight in this latest video from Civic Exchange in Hong Kong.
