Safe city in the concept of shared space

The film called The Netherlands, Leeuwarden, Friesland Province – safe city in the concept of shared space promotes a widespread idea of sharing urban public space. The Province of Friesland was the first one to implement the shared space solution. The concept minimizes demarcations between vehicles and pedestrians: curbs, barriers, road surface markings, traffic signs, and excessive regulations, which paradoxically make traffic users more careful and prudent. The experience of the Province proves a positive impact on safety, traffic flow and efficiency, environmental protection and the quality of the society, architecture and public space.
