Re: London's streets @Mary: The city introduced congestion charging in the 90's which had the efect of reducing traffic dramatically and in addition it developed more closed pedestrian spaces and improved facilties for pedestrians and cyclists. However it still has a long way to go and, though the drivers are generally safe, there are still a large contingent who drive in a state of road entitlement mixed with a instant rage at anyone who gets in their way, the more vulnerable the more rage.
This needs to be changed through driver re-education and has not been. So yes, the city is low on the list of most pedestrian-friendly cities.
London's streets When I was first in London it was 1970, and even as a teenager who was used to NYC walking I was afraid to cross London's streets. The tiny cars zoomed at lightning speed and it was clear they weren't stopping for anyone.
Wonder if London would top a list of the most "pedestrian unfriendly" cities?
