Safe Crossing Project - Potentially unsafe pedestrian crossings in Luxembourg-City
Project description - At a glance
Safe Crossing is a project based on a crowd-sourced effort to assess if the setup of pedestrian crossings in Luxembourg-City complies with the Code de la Route.
Specifically, the project aimed at finding out whether Articles 164(2.)(e) & 166(h) of the Code de la Route were respected. This means, generally speaking, that no designated parking spot is allowed to be placed within 5 metres of a pedestrian crossing. In practice, many pedestrian crossings are setup in a way that violates this rule.
- A total of 1787 pedestrian crossings were analysed.
- The setup of 475 (27%) crossings is likely in violation of the Code de la Route
- For 162 (9%) crossings, no assessment was possible
The remaining 1150 (64%) pedestrian crossings have been assessed as being in compliance with the Code de la Route.
This means that almsost a third of all pedestrian crossings in the City of Luxembourg may not be setup according to the rules of the law.
