A friend posted this video on Facebook. I’m a fan of shared space concepts (in context), so I followed it to the homepage of FiTRoads. Traffic lights seem to be the primary focus there. I use traffic lights to my advantage in the current system, so I feel more friendly toward them than, say, stop signs or certain white paint. But there’s some intriguing stuff on the link trail.
From Equality Streets:
Most instructional road signs are badges of failure; failure to forge a culture that stimulates empathy, and failure to design roads in a way that stimulates considerate conduct. Official fixation with control = official neglect of civilised solutions based on equality and context.
Here’s another FiTRoads video.
