Monderman and Buchanan

* Monderman (1980) said, change the roads from separate spaces for cars and pedestrians. Make the roads seem more dangerous and lose the signs, control devices… Then people slow down to a speed they can take in the danger, which is around running speed.

These ideas are great, however, are less useful to the less able bodied who require big fat signs and order to keep their driving safe

* Monderman ideas were in contrast to Buchanan who earlier (1960) in the UK had made the roads separate to pedestrians for safety.
