This report of a survey into shared space in the UK looked at the experiences of all road users comparing their views on shared space versus traditional streets.

Participants self-selected to take part.

It highlights the desire amongst visually impaired people to have key elements found in a traditional street environment, notably  controlled crossing points, tactile paving and raised kerbs. It provides an interesting range of views though and doesn’t just focus on disabled people.
