The North Carolina Department of Transportation's Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation sponsored research to examine the potential for developing school walk zone guidelines for the state.
Main Findings from 2007 Benchmarking Report:
A positive relationship exists between the built environment and levels of biking and walking.
Where levels of biking and walking are higher, bicycle and pedestrian safety is greater.
Cities with strong Thunderhead organizations generally have high levels of biking and walking.
The UK Commission for Integrated Transport felt there was still a need to better understand the relationship between travel mode and retail spend at different retail locations and has therefore undertaken an extensive household survey, using shopping diaries, face-to-face interviews and focus groups.
“Providing For Pedestrians” has been produced by Rodney Tolley (of CAST and
WALK21 i), for use by a range of professionals. It presents a summary of the most
important issues which affect the amount of walking in our society.
