An etiquette for sharing in Darebin
A couple of months ago we started work on a campaign along the St Georges Road shared path to get pedestrians and riders talking to each other about how they share the space. Shared spaces can be tricky and none more so than paths shared by pedestrians and bike riders who are in a hurry to be somewhere!
Working with behaviour change experts Studio Huss and the City of Darebin, we've run several sessions late on Wednesday afternoons and one on a weekend. We used the promise of free ice cream from The Rolling Scoops to entice both riders and pedestrians to stop and have a chat to each other about the way in which they share path space.
You can take a look at the ideas both riders and pedestrians put forward on the City of Darebin Facebook page. These suggestions will be used to develop a shared path etiquette and Darebin are asking you to vote here on the ideas put forward.
The five most popular suggestions will be signed on shared paths throughout Darebin in 2016. Voting on the suggestions put forward starts now and will be live until January 5th.
