Abstract: 

The following guide offers my thoughts on how we can better shape cities around communities and people, both in emerging cities where this issue is of critical importance, and in developed cities.

Shaping cities around low-traffic neighbourhoods is key to creating inclusive, sustainable, and enjoyable places.

Abstract: 

Junctions are places of interaction and hence conflict for all road users. Two thirds of all collisions in built up areas occur at junctions, with pedestrians and cyclists being most at risk. The aim of the research is to investigate the attitudes to change, and likely behaviour at junctions, of all types of road users, were a general and unambiguous duty to ‘give way on turning’ to be introduced in the UK context. Q-methodology was used because it is good at capturing and describing divergent views and also consensus.
