Living Streets Aotearoa

A great idea and a project of the International Federation of Pedestrians

When streets are dead-end for cars but are open for pedestrians as well as cyclists we label them living-end-streets.

Vegetation fliers - for Overhanging or on the Footpath, Trees and Shrubs

We have a green flyer that you can place in people's letterboxes asking them to cut back vegetation that is a footpath obstacle.

You can order Vegetation Fliers by email to: accounts [at] 

Councils and other organisations can order print runs with their logo included. Or find a sponsor and we can get them printed for you with your sponsor's name.

Vegetation Flyers are available free to members and individuals at local meetings or we can send small numbers to members direct. Larger numbers by arrangement.

Rules for Drivers to Give Way to Pedestrians at Intersections

Living Streets wants greater emphasis to be given to keeping pedestrians and other vulnerable road users safe. 

In the first instance, we think the Road Code should treat pedestrians as it treats other road users at intersections (mode equality). This would mean that turning vehicles would give way to pedestrians walking straight through (see the diagram below).
