    Abstract

    This paper assesses Danish experience in attempting to integrate traffic with its surroundings in existing areas. Rest and play areas, quiet roads with a 30 km/h speed limit, and major road schemes on urban shopping streets and through villages are all discussed; so too are policies seeking to create safe routes to school, the problems arising from the introduction of speed reduction measures on bus routes, and the merits of area-wide as opposed to incremental approaches. It is recommended as an appropriate model for Britain to follow. Incremental implementation risks being sub-optimal in design terms but has distinct advantages in minimizing conflicts and enabling rapid implementation. -from Author
