A research titled ‘Assessment of pedestrian safety measures in Europe’ co-authored by G.Yannis, G Kanellaidis, J.Dimitropoulos and N. Muhlrad was published in ITE Journal in December 2007. An extensive hierarchical inventory of pedestrian safety measures took place, classifying them according to the functions served and the main safety problems addressed. This comprehensive synthesis showed that mechanisms should be ensured for converting policy into practice at the level of “street design” and guaranteeing coordination between actors of different responsibilities and disciplinary backgrounds. doi
