Film “Putting Pedestrians First – Experiencing Pedestrian Priority Zones in Switzerland”

This film shows that public spaces with speed limit 20km/h in which pedestrians have the priority over all vehicles are becoming popular places to walk and stroll, even if there are many vehicles. The interaction between pedestrians and drivers works out quite different than in places with higher speeds or without the legal priority for pedestrians. The film illustrates that this type of radical traffic-calming allows an urban re-design which makes out of the public space a meeting place or even an outdoor living room (14 minutes, English spoken, 2007)
