WE ARE ALL PEDESTRIANS
The PEDESTRIANS SIDEWALKS in the NEW streets of the Port, la Platja and Víctor Concas Street from l'Estartit are illegitimate and illegally occupied by rubish and waste containers, lorries, cars, tables and chairs, cyclists
(?)...Perhaps pedestrians (tourists, locals, potential buyers or consumers, disabled people, children ...) don't deserve to enter and leave the commercial area of Santa Anna Street (or Main Street) by sidewalks for pedestrians, with TRANQUILITY and SECURITY?
(?)...Don't believe that this can influence people to consume more, buy more, enjoy more, go more CALM and SAFE?
PHOTOS FROM SIDEWALKS OCUPATION
►SIGNATURE against the occupation
of pedestrian sidewalks and
the deterioration of the quality
of the beach sand in L'Estartit.
What impression will the next tourist (below) face before a "pedestrian sidewalk landfill or dump" in the middle of the urban center. You could make "postcards" because we don't believe that any neighboring town offers an equal show.
These violations of the rights of pedestrians occupying sidewalks have already been denounced by different people to the police (and to politicals), disabled people and tourists (then they say that do it "in the name of" tourism or business .... and... bla, bla, bla ...), which have been saved from being thrown or have refused to circulate on the road where the vehicles do.
They, politics or authorities, solve a problem creating new problems.
Disabled tourists treated (much) worse than dogs.
Summary of the underline: Discussion. The woman of Bar "La Cantonada" (click here) against the handicapped lady. She recriminates (to handicapped lady) in very bad ways. Set aside a chair with your table. Occupation of public road on sidewalk, because I needed to pass and then I would put it back in the same place. The acting patrol informed the lady that she can file a complaint / complaint with the EMD. The acting patrol (police) informed to the handicapped lady that she can put a complaint to the EMD. The acting patrol has mediated with both parts 20-25 min. Calming. The owner has consistently stated that she pays 2,000 euros for occupying the public sideway.
These are ways to treat tourists!
Where is inclusive tourism and tourism for all (click here)?
And what security is given to all?
An aggressor like this finished in the impunity!?
The aggressor woman with the history she has why don't tell her anything?
Can't be sanctioned?
Then they, authorities, reinforce as a reward she continuing to assault one and others.
What des-implication and DESTRUCTION OF TOURISM!!!
Don't have life rights the handicapped, poor they?
Should be they treat worse than a dog?
And what do you earn of report that?
If they, police, send and report to the EMD, what do you thing they doesn't nothing?
Well, the responsibility is on the top of the police, where they redirecting her (to the authorities from EMD Entity Municipale Descenter of l'Estartit). Thus, an indirect way of attacking is to leave a sidewalk be occupied when is insufficient (more when the other side is impassable by the slope).
This is the way to take care and promote the tourism?
So much tolerance for such bad events should be allowed?
Do you think these tourists will come again?
We think that the responsible for these problems are of the politicians and authorities that they deviated problems from other sites disobeying the laws and the ordinances.
The law serves to bring order and social peace (without laws will becomes the American's West films or the Sherwood's forests of Robin Hood).
INFRINGING THE LAW BRINGS TO DISCOMFORT AND SOCIAL CONFLICT. They promote discomfort, they make to fight or confront some people against others.
They create new problems.
There are very brave ones to attack weaker ones under inferior conditions. This is cowardly (click here).
See the management of the authority in his own home, the complaints and opinions (following links below).
How do your customers feel treated?
How is the village of l'Estartit?
How do they want us to go well?
If possibly most tourists don't return!?!?

WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO PAY for these NEW streets of our village, in times of crisis, AGAINST OUR WILL (charging a lot of money by the non-existent floors flats that could be made in the future - but why if we don't want to do now or neither tomorrow - UNDER THREAT OF SEIZURE and against our will - that has another name we think - in our case (hold on tight to the armchair)
about 80.000 euros.
they think perhaps we're going to collect or harvest money in the garden !!! click here).
and now, ABOVE ALL, THEY TAKE OUT THE PEDESTRIANS SIDEWALKS for disavow or unwilling to manage it better.
And also, AGAINST THE ORDINANCES AND LAWS IN FORCE. Illegitimate.
That's not clever and not graceful.
Waste containers and lorries loading and unloading are managed interfering with the mobility of pedestrians.
And they charge commercial premises, money, to occupy the sidewalk of pedestrians with tables and chairs making terraces.
They still MAKE PROFIT from THIS ILLEGAL ISSUE.
Do they want to get juice out of the stones!?
Do they want to exploit the donkeys?!!
Go and express !!?
That's not honest.
That's not honoured.
Give us back OUR moneeeeeeeeeeyyyy.
The sidewalks are a PUBLIC DOMAIN, are of everybody, aren't yours.
THE PEDESTRIAN'S FOOTPATHS
Do not deprive us of fundamental RIGHTS and FREEDOMS.
We want to walk with PEACE and SECURITY.
Sidewalks in any other civilized place are for pedestrians.
It's not enough to make a village to live (of...), must be a village TO LIVE IN - IT.
We has been allowed them too much and now they has not limits.
WE ARE ALL PEDESTRIANS
How is possible they have made pay for this sidewalk or sideway of the photo above! Can you tell us, neighbours, how much you have paid for it ?? Is that made of silver maybe ???
How is possible that they leave this south-west sidewalk of Víctor Concas street without giving solution to a problem and a danger with the slope that has it? We already know that it is a torrent ... but ...
If that IS USELESS FOR PEDESTRIANS!!!
And above on the other side are occupied by commercial premises !! That's one of the busiest streets in the village, in the region !!!!
What a shame !!!
Or a perforated metal sidewalk pull-and-put, get up ... or another alternative !!??!!
Like now it's worse than before !!!!
... SO IF THEY WANT ...
... to control the truck drivers ...
The truck drivers continue to unload where they want regardless of their indications and signs.
So, return the sidewalks to their rightful owners ... the pedestrians.
Do not appropriate of something DOESN'T BELONG YOU.
The neighbours have paid for the streets.
Are they thinking that they are the owners of all and they are above the law?
They are acting ...
OUT OF THE LAW. (click here).

(see photo map)
In red colour (photo map reference)... pedestrian side-walks occupied illegally.
In light brown colour (important!) ..places compatible with pedestrians where in the past had been occupied legally by waste containers and lorries loading-unloading, always legally (the light brown of the whole right represents that further in the little square of Mr. D. is restricted the entrance to lorries to the street "Les Illes" to reach the middle of St Anna Street (the Main Street)- why? Who lives?
Click here to go to this authority square
We also ask you that on the Barcelona Street (that communicate with St. Anna Street by short passage or corridor called "Xiscu i la Remei") where in the past were the waste containers and the most important lorries load-unloading ... Who lives? Don't you tie up loose ends? .... yes, YES.... "loose ends".
In blue sky colour (map reference)... other places where you could legally locate waste and loading-unloading.
Although doing other types of waste collection, there would be no one-and-a-half months of tourism to "shit no place" for the whole year and they make so much noise (much ado for nothing) pedestrian's legitimate mobility.
All of this "a lot of noise and few nuts". They do that in the name of tourism, business...but just to wind votes.
And while they fix their ownstreets.
"Much Ado About Nothing"
The Hubub Touristic Municipal Model
(Estartit - Torroella de Montgrí)
At the municipal tourist model of "too much noise and few nuts" (or hubub model - much ado about nothing) they are thinking that making loud concerts and passing-streets then the tourists come and the commerces do more business. This, sometimes works to make the competition betwen one commerce to another one intra-municipality, that is, within the same municipality. Or sometimes, between municipalities. But that's very relative and has a masked side effects.
Certain is that when there are loud concerts and noisy streets, those potential tourists who are taking a walk in the commercial area, then they are distracted and go to the beach (or the place where they do) to see what happens and maybe stay thereand don't go through the shops again. Or come back by commercial area with less time later. If they pass later faster and with less time, then they will surely spend less money at commerces.
Very clear and understandable should be for everybody, regardless of the crisis, that who eats or drinks at shops from the beach concert that money will not be spent in bars or restaurants in the village. That's obvious. And that tourist will haveless money left in the wallet. Then you can see more people spend less on drinking and eating.
Then, restaurateurs will complain that tourists do not have money.That at the end are being a bad business for bars and restaurants that pay taxes to the townhall. Since that situation produces unfair competition betwen commerces and town hall. Its houldn't be this sale of drinks and eats from the town hall of a tourist municipality that supports and helps the "locals" business. The restoration business should not be municipality.
This demonstrates what we have been saying here that is just a facade the discourse that they support or take care for the villagers business.
Why need they for Saint John's Eve to bring 3 diferent music concerts? Why play they so loud music until 3 or 4 am past midnight? Is that also the same tourist model of "much noise and few nuts" (much ado about nothing), isn't? And also an unsustainable tourism (hubub) that doesn't contribute anything.
Excuse us its were'n 3, the concerts were 9.
This night, you can watch people getting off the cars with bags of food and drinks that they have bought from where they come and don't spend, someone, nothing here. Many! Many cars yes. Many people. Yes. And how is the beach later?
How much does cost to clean the beach after this night? What a mess!
Which are the profits by the town hall (or rather which are the expenses or cost)?
With these expenses or unnecessary losses they would be to lower taxes to villagers.
That's not sustainable.
Oh ... and the people who can't rest by the concerts noise? Do you think another year they will come back if you don't let them sleep?
Particularly, we prefer that they do just one concert and until 1 am. in the morning, then they charge us less taxes, and with this money saved from the taxes we made our own party like we want and when we want or spend in anyother things.
The tourists that we want or we need come here by some 5 "big" reasons:
1. To make summer vacations.
2. To make a weekend or a holidays days.
3. By the heat, the summer, the climate, the warm weather invites you to go out and walk and do leisure activities.
4. To rest and distract from work, the urbans cities, etc..
5. By the beach, the Medas Islands and surroundings, a nice and SAFE place.
That could also be synthesized in 3 reasons:
a) To make a holidays or weekend holidays, that is, on vacation.
b) By the summer season, warm climate to rest or to make leisure activities (winter season would be for holidays in the snow)
c) By beach tourism, sun, beautiful and safe environment.
These are the "great reasons" of the vast majority of tourists, then, in minority from those great reasons your can find others types of tourists that come as those who will do Saint John's Eve (included in the previous great reasons, p. ex. at number 2 and 4). As for other subtypes of motifs or tourism such as scuba diving (included in 3), because many of those who come on vacation and on the beach, many of these end up aiming to dive as an activity that offer this place. And who says this, the same for other leisure activities that are done and for others that aren't made or are enhanced. If they try to offer scuba diving outside the "great grounds" mentioned for free would almost nobody (see a Wednesday in January outside the summer season, cold, working time ...).
Thus the municipal model of tourism "much ado for nothing" (organized disorder) is very relative and not valid, very "clumsy" or rude and valid rather for archaic and primitive people. And more still, sometimes against the own business of the villagers. And it has very undesirable rebound effects as well that tourists with higher purchasing power will go away and go to other places where their senses are not so much bombed against their will. They don't seek the massification and problems derived from the city which they come have it. Many tourists in this area go away because of too much noise, by scandalous neighbours, by dogs barking fromother neighbour ... So there are people who go away by the municipal tourist model of "a lot of noise and little few nuts".
Great tourists Estartit
Tourists with higher purchasing power have been lost (with humor).
So we ask ourselves, what efficiency and efficiency and what benefits and expenses can entail to apply this model of hubub? Even a child could understand.
We are thinking that acting like this "has not substance and not grace". Moreover, this "seeing", "pretending" or "swank" that authorities or rulers (in a crude way and typical from bumptious people) use to make us believe that "they do a lot for the people of this village, for the business of the villagers, for the tourism "... which should be showy tourist action, come great concerts, come on rampage, ... that they are wise and are the best, and that without their contribution wouldn't be possible economic prosperity. This situational "swelling" (vainglory) is to keep the merchants happy and their votes insured .... when in the real reality they make disproportionate expenses and while they loose other types of people and tourists.
Isn't the touristic model of "too much noise and few nuts" what happens with the occupancy on the sidewalks of Port, Platja and Victor Concas Street?
They make us explicitly or implicitly believe that if they don't make the commotion (fanfare proper of arrogance and snooty actions) to give the sidewalks to trucks drivers and rubish containers there will be no business or good turism.
Implicitly the merchants will lack the raw material that the truckers carry and therefore they make believe that we must sacrifice sidewalks "in the name of" tourism and business (much noise - much ado), disdaining that sidewalks are for pedestrians and disabled for walking in a safe way. They illegitimately force pedestrians not to continue on the same route (pedestrian sideway or footpath) and force them to cross the road with the consequent danger of trucks, cars, rubish containers, etc ... a insustanaible mobility type "maze or labyrinth". At the end it leads to pedestrians, disabled or people with more purchasing power that demand more quality and less complications, stop coming to a town that is not designed for all ... And although the political authorities boasting to say "Here ... We are all (political slogan) ". Well then we are NOT ALL !! Because in the case of people with disabilities they are discriminated and devalued. They think that these tourists will be very willing to return to a city that is not planned for all, not intended for them, intended only for some.
So, what seems like too much fuss, dinor rampage just for a month and a half of high tourist season, this "much noise" (much ado) makes the "few nuts" (about nothing) or the loss or outflow of tourists.
And also, throughout the rest of the year pedestrians in the street of the Port can walk within security sidewalks without border ("curb") or "sticks". We need a pedestrian village. Before and first than bicycles and dogs. People have to be the first, the sustainable travelers.

The rulers want to make see with these "staging" that are very "competent", "that they do a lot for the people of this village" acting congruently with this pride or superiority and command with all their fanfare to win or to maintain voters and confirmers. When they really despiseand under value others. And against the ordinances and laws, facts totally illegitimate and improper, showing that arrogance that they are unique and the best, that they are "enlightened" and above all law.
The rulers make it appear with these "staging" that they are very "competent", "they do a lot for the people" acting congruously with this pride or superiority and "command" so that with their fanfare win or maintain voters and confirmers . When they really despiseand under value others. And agains tthe ordinances and laws, facts totally illegitimate and improper, showing arrogantly that they are unique and the best, that they are "enlightened" in the name of business and tourism, and that they are above everything and any law. In addition they are thinking that solve a problem (which there wouldn't need so much fanfare) but they create new ones.
Have you tried a summer not to do any animation or music event? Do you think nobody will come? Are you sure or think that? Well, at least nobody will go out by the noise and the noise turistic model.
Why is not possible to orient the concert stages to the sea or to locate it far away (more inside the beach, at the height of the old Miramar Hotel or at the "Molinet" if was necessary) to maintain and win all types of tourists. Then "each type of tourist has his own space or territory without being interfered or despised in this enjoyment and leisure".
Why can't the rulers make theirs performances within the space (that gives much) that limit the law?
Why can't truck drivers come with more time (slow life in slow city) and then use more the wheel barrows or pushcarts? Why can't the municipal cleaning service use another alternative type of garbage collection and leave the sidewalks in peace for the pedestrians?
Why can't we have a more beautiful village? Are a esthetic and beautiful, apart from not being practical or safe, to have the pedestrians sidewalks occupied?
OR FALL OF DESTRUCTIVE CAPITALISM
OF AN IDYLLIC VILLAGE.
The Un-Sustainable Urbanization.
(We thank the authorities who have done so and still make it possible, click here).
What beatiful Rocamaura mountain!!!
What green maritime street!
Now with many more tourists in summer than before ...
But any autochthonous was earning much better life than now.
Besides, before was not a safer, idyllic and beautiful place ??
What do we want to asphalt more, the tongue??
When more businesses and more people will be accepted then much less money to distribute and win with a model of "rapacious competition".
More "sloppiness" in compliance.
"Less civility and more conflict."
At the end no one will make a well living. What is already happening.
Let's go back, worse in every way.
This model of uproar (much ado about nothing) in the long run leads nowhere and will hurt us much more that will not benefit us.
with untenable humor
"less civility and more conflict"
The purpose of this website is to give out and publish complaints, photos and reports of problems in the village of L'Estartit (that you can send to email@example.com) and also to encourage stalls to join us in an entity (Qual'Est) to defend a good "Quality of Life" and the rights of the inhabitants or tourists who are vulnerable.
We will use our right to freedom of expression and free association.
(Qual'Est - "Estartit Quality")
We want a "Normal People" with the Basic Rights protected and sheltered.
We want rulers or governings with moral values, with no desire for power, notoriety, profit or vanity (click here), neither "know-it-all" that they know about this and that ... and about all, ... but with an authentic vocation of service to the community.
Rulers that, like the police or those who carry weapons, should pass a selection, that is, a minimum score in a psychological and personality tests. They should also demonstrate their knowledge in multiple academic disciplines. Of course in subjects of letters and humanities.
Humble, frank, honest and eager to learn from day to day, open to all opinions, flexible, reversible and alternative, without personal or private interests, that have not business that can benefit from their decisions, without cronyism neither favouritism.
Without a desire to remain in perpetuity, in lifelong positions, politicians should often be relieved in their positions (without degenerating into a "politocracy") and giving way, without impeding access, to the new generations. And listen to the people, with genuine empathy, and take into account the opinion of all, ... but ... and above all, above all, everything ... and EVERYTHING, respect ALL LAWS AND ORDINANCES in force.
We want a "Beautiful City", Quality "Slow City", Green and Sustainable. A pedestrian village. How can pedestrian walks implement the municipal service of garbage containers and loading-unloading trucks? Sustainable mobility without pedestrians? This doesn't exist! Each street has to be used independently of the others and "no" turns the streets into a transport industry (secondary streets) sacrificing pedestrian walks.They have to be careful of each street individually. All are equal streets. The rulers can not close or restrict traffic throughout the summer in the streets where they live and redirect it to other streets occupying public walks, we should have been asked first and they shouldn't appropriate as if it were a private or municipal property.
We want a city with more green spaces, more trees, flowers, fountains, some sculpture or monument would not make ugly ... with "places with views" reserved to enjoy the wonderful landscape that attracts so many tourists every year. Promoting local and regional gastronomy more.
A model of sustainable, accessible and inclusive tourism, FOR ALL, tourism of QUALITY, a mass tourism controlled. Not the current municipal tourist model of "too much noise and few nuts" and discrimination. We need a control of noise pollution (click here)... tourists do not take vacations to find again the noise of the city, nor a low air quality.
An economy based on quality, not of indefinite tourist masses poor or not at all. An evaluation of tourists and actions for tourism and the costs and benefits obtained annually. Actions using knowledge of scientific research, scientific method, and public (and transparent) dissemination of results, since tourism here we all live.
Do not distract shoppers from concerts and street-goers with noisy drums (these things don't understand them) and do not miss out on fine (and therefore collect) dog owners who bother barking the buyers in the Commercial area, or neighbours or tourists who rest.
Those concerts (that at the end we pay between all) where there are the sale of drinks and / or meals, make the disloyal competition to the bars and restaurants of the town. We want a government oriented to the interests of bars, restaurants, shops, hotels. We say Not to the municipalize of the restoration and business. Not to the empowerment of some businesses (or groups) above others.
We want municipal services with a justified quality-price, simple and efficient. Real and quality citizen service. An open and transparent administration, following the rules of good government, with participatory democracy and "not" to govern against the will of the people. Popular consultations are needed especially on the big issues (making new streets, neighbourhood costs, ...)
With municipal technicians more visibles and everywhere, not only exclusive to the municipal affairs or to first class people. Quality management in all areas and not a façade ...
We want more security and police involvement with the citizens and theirs problems, not only with the municipal affairs, and that the political authorities don't interfere in the police actions and, therefore, are independent of those. Independent police to enforce ordinances and laws. This police have a lot of potential! At the same time taxes are proportionated and fair to peaceful residents. Less taxes we needed, less amounts.
Social justice. Equal rights and equality of obligations for all. We are all people, we are all the same. We must all be treated equally. The law must be the same for all.
We want close and accessible authorities, honesty and with ethical code, nobles, impartials, involved and not generators or perpetuating conflicts, peaceful, that make fair decisions, with law, equity and proportion, that don't make fight some neighbours against others and behind they wash their hands, that the improper behaviour of the conflicted people, the good ones don't have to pay for the bad ones, be a noble citizen should have less taxes. It is necessary to carry out an "Auca" of Civility and Right Behaviour as they have already done in other municipalities and star to distribute it throughout the population. To approve also an Ordinance of Civility and Coexistence and its corresponding sanction regime since we are in the queue of the advanced populations. Newcomers would thus learn from an exemplary model of behaviour in our society. With the application of this "psychosocial prevention model", neighbourhood and municipal conflicts would be reduced and police wouldn't have to act so frequently. Likewise, the application of the sanctioning regime from the beginning of some conflicts would make it difficult to reinforce people who are conflicted about not being penalized after conducting annoying, incorrect, unmindful and egocentric behaviour. Likewise, the victims would feel more protected and safe in the community and less cornered. Victim advocacy and support would be primary objectives in any abuse intervention. However for childhood could be offered in school some classes of Civility education and coexistence.
Without first class citizens and second class citizens, the latter should not be considered as an economic and manipulative object to be exploited (we are not slaves, we will not put the other cheek) ... Dignity!
To solve a problem that does not create new problems and harm other people ... That if we pay taxes don't come with other problems and harm us. That this has made us charge so much money to make a new streets (80,000 euro) and occupy the side-walks of pedestrians, it can happen to anyone tomorrow with these governments and we want to have the SECURITY of not being harmed again. Let us LIVE IN PEACE.
This is the reason for founding this entity (Qual'Est), to have security and defence towards the "abuses of authority or power" and inequality of treatment that are practised now and in the future. We will defend the Rights and Quality of Life. Why this time has touched us, but tomorrow can touch you (the "big milking").
We want a town with the maximum of AUTONOMY and of INDEPENDENCE to other municipalities ... not to go back ...
We don't conform, we don't resign ourselves, we don't shut up and we don't kneel
(front unjust decisions and actions of the politicians and the "politocracy")
Let's raise our heads !!! WE WILL ACT PEACEFUL, BUT WITH FIRMFULNESS AND ... THEY WILL NEVER TAKE OUR DIGNITY.
For all this and much more, we founded (we hope that you JOIN US ... if no nothing) the entity "Qual'Est" (Quality Estartit) non-profit motiv, an entity to defend the "Quality of Life" of ALL the residents (and of those who love this village)
(Because with THIS ... WE ARE NOT L'EST)
To fight for a Small and Beautiful Village
(But soo "Very Good")
With a Good Quality of Life and Dignity.
In your hands have the future and the "Quality of Life" and the Rights of tomorrow.
Shut up ... or
Send your data (name, address, email and phone / mobile) as a free registration to Qual'Est ... to email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
We want people of all ages (young and old) to carry out a project full of positive consequences.
Our next goals will be:
1. The return of the pedestrian sidewalks in the streets of Port, Platja and Víctor Concas Street. For the safety of the pedestrians, so that they belong to them, for the tranquility and well-being when walking and doing health. Ask for responsibilities and resignations. Judicial route included, even criminal liability for Abuse of authority or power and Prevalence. Including the judial path also by the following sections.
2. Since the mentioned sidewalks have been used for lorries load-unloading and waste container, it is necessary for those responsible for this illegality to pay damages and the premature wear that these sidewalks have suffered.
3. Through the Law of Transparency, find out about the costs of the Municipal Cleaning Service during the last six years. Such as containers, trucks, salaries, etc. The multiplication of waste containers.
4. Claim a solution to the south western sidewalk of the Víctor Concas Street. If we have paid, it can't be worse than it was before.
5. Claim inspections of technicians regarding the noise of the refrigeration engine of a Pizzeria (click here) that every summer will return to work and disturb. Permissions, etc. .....
And if you join our entity, you can be assured that we defend the problems (such as scandalous neighbors who bother, business with innocuous problems that involve problems, etc.) that suffer from the bad management of the quality of life that authorities do leaving us without law or order (in this policy of "save who can" and "find yourself who has touched").
5. ...... you will say ...

European Charter for the Rights of Pedestrians
European Parliament resolution
of October 12 of 1988
1. The pedestrians have right to live in a healthy environment and enjoy free their public space in the conditions of safety appropriate for their physical and psychological health.
2. Pedestrians have the right to live in urban or ruralplaces organized in a human scale, not the car scale, and to have infrastructures which are easily accessible on foot or by bicycle.
3. Children, the elderly and disabled people have the right to make the city a place of socialization and not to worsen their situation of weakness.
4. Persons with disabilities have the right to take specific measures to enable them to achieve all possible mobility, such as the removal of architectural barriers and the improvement of public transport.
5. The pedestrian has the right to reserve urban areas as broad as possible that they are not mere pedestrian islands, but that they insert in a coherent way in the general organization of the city.
6. The pedestrians havethe right in particular:
With regard to the rules concerning chemical and acoustic emissions of motor vehicles considered scientifically asendurable.
A widespread introduction in public transport of vehicles that are not a source of air or noise pollution.
Creation of green lungs, even through urban reforestation works.
The limitation of speed through a structural reform of the streets, crossings (for example with the help of islands), so that motorists rectify speed and ensure pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
To the prohibition of the dissemination of advertising messages that foment the misuse and dangerous of the vehicles.
Efficient signalling systems also designed for people who are deprived of sight and hearing.
Specific measures to stop and access roads and side-walks (for example, paving ramps to overcome the unevenness of the streets, special measures during construction work, protection againstvehicles traffic through urban elements, creation of points of rest and rest, and underground steps and bridges that facilitate the crossing).
In introducing a system of strict liability of risk, so that whoever is responsible for a risk has financial consequences.
7. The pedestrian has the right to complete and free mobility that can be achieved through the integrated use of means of transport.
In particular they have the right:
A public transport service articulated and properly equipped to meet the demands of all citizens, whether they are disabled or not.
In the implantation of lanes for bicycles in all the urban helmet.
In the provision of parking areas that do not affect the mobility of pedestrians and the possibility of enjoying architectural values.
8. Every state should ensure that the public receives all necessary information about the rights of pedestrians through appropriate channels from the earliest levels of school education.
The European Charter on Pedestrian Rights was adopted by the European Parliament on October 12, 1988. It contains the recommendations of the European Union on the problems of the urban environment in relation to traffic and transport as well as alternativesfrom an urban planning point of view.
If we really want a lovable and participatory eco-city, we must create urban scenarios where people are above private motor vehicles. A healthy environment, quality public spaces, and the right conditions to increase autonomy in the mobility of various weaker social groups must be achieved. The POSSIBLE solutions are highlighted by the European Charter of Rights....
