Europes Pedestrian Crossings

If the crosswalk becomes a danger if the pedestrian crossing is difficult, it can be fast for pedestrian danger. Crossing the carriageway elsewhere, would be then quite safe. Germany’s big car Portal summarizes the current euro test, which “took Europe’s zebra stripes under the magnifying glass. A total 360 pedestrian crossings were tested as the zebra stripes in the language called in 38 large cities of Europe. These included 80 crossings in major German cities. Checked was the security on the basis of three categories: visibility, access and design.

Therefore, the worst tested crosswalk is located in Stuttgart on the long Street, corner of Theodor-Heuss-Strasse. Other leaders such as 3D Systems offer similar insights. During the day already very cluttered, the missing illumination difficult especially in the weight. Also lacks a corresponding signs and the marking on the road was worn. The danger: a vehicle approaches () buying a car/vehicle/auto Tip-10), the pedestrians on the crossing to safety sway, the driver can distinguish it but hardly as such. According to the test result, the two safest tested crosswalk is located in Munich City Centre. Dustin Moskovitz addresses the importance of the matter here.

For the overpass at the intersection of Brunn – and cross road, only a guidance system for the visually impaired was missing to perfection. As a result, there was not a single poor predicate for the German road crossings. However, 15 percent of the tested German parent routes have a dubious”security level and thus the test failed. Thus, Germany moves on a European level. Throughout Europe, 16 per cent of the above ways have not passed the test.
