The living end roads project

Another proposal from Living Streets. Do we like this idea?

A road that offers no exit for motorized through traffic is often referred to and signed as a dead-end road. However, when such a road continues as a road or path usable by pedestrians or cyclists, we call these "living end roads".

We started a project to correct the old and often misleading signage of living end streets, and developed a sticker that will be put on the current sign.

Living Streets wants to change give way rules to favour pedestrians, and seeks CAN support

Andy Smith from Living Streets wants to know if CAN would support a change to the give way rules.

In summary: drivers of turning vehicles should give way to pedestrians (and other non-vehiclar traffic) that are crossing the road the vehicle is turning into (ie adopt the Australian and UK rules).
