Abstract

We all experience situations of insecurity as we go about our daily business. When our ability to walk is impaired, we are no longer able to move around freely and we are housebound or confined to the immediate vicinity, while roads become insurmountable barriers. Access to the public and private means of transport is often not designed to meet the needs of disabled persons.

Creating safe access routes which everyone is able to use is one of the most important tasks now being placed both on town planners and transport technicians and on the government.

This conference is intended to enable researchers, experts, citizens and administrators to tackle the problems of those whose mobility has been limited by even a temporary disability.

The papers will present means of reducing the inconvenience and anger expressed by citizens in the towns open spaces because of disabilities which impair their mobility, in particular along pedestrian routes which interact with traffic flows. lows.
