Abstract

Public attitudes and consultation in neighbourhood traffic calming schemes were examined to discover

(1) Whether certain groups of the population are more supportive of traffic calming.

(2) Whether there is any correlation between the type of consultation used and the 'success' of the scheme.

The conclusions in this paper are drawn from research (Taylor, 1995) into the study of consultation processes in traffic calming schemes in four British towns and cities, namely Brighton, Leicester, Sheffield and York. These schemes were developed as part of the Feet First (Transport 2000, 1988) initiative.
