The association, whose main objectives are administrative transparency and open dialogue, carried out a project titled Safe Crossing. About one third of pedestrian crossings in the capital (475 in total) were determined to be non-compliant with Luxembourg’s highway code.
The data is the result of a crowd-sourced collection of information by 20 active volunteers participating between June and August 2021. The participants used a custom-made application on their phone which presented them pedestrian crossings in the capital on a map using satellite imagery. The volunteers were then asked to assess whether there were parking spots within 5 metres of the crossing in question.
The non-profit association admits that no assurances can be made about the data as it has been crowd-sourced but it highlights that the result points to a general lack of safety for pedestrians in the capital.
