Shared Space

"Encounter zone" sign in Metz, France

The numerous innovative street designs that follow the shared-space approach, which is even anchored in the road traffic laws of some countries, are based on mutual respect between the road-users who share the street environment. Sophisticated street layouts encourage drivers to reduce their speeds, similar to the driving behaviour in pedestrian zones. In such environments large areas of road surface can be won for public space and other uses.
