Shared Surfaces for the visually impaired

April 14, 2010

Shared Surfaces: In a survey of 500 blind or partially sighted people, 9 out of 10 participants said they had concerns about shared surfaces and a further 6 out of 10 either avoiding or reluctant to use these streets. Shared surfaces are a real problem but local authorities appear to see them as an answer to pedestrian and traffic problems.
