There is a paradigm shift going on in The Netherlands. New vehicles are fighting for their place on the streets, cycle lanes are overflowing, pedestrians are undervalued. To cope with these pressures, it is important to re-evaluate the importance of place, and the role of specific streets in the wider network. This new approach includes a new way of thinking about traffic safety and the value of place. The shift in rationale from a transport focused to a place focused approach seems to have better outcomes for both transport and place functions of the street. This study can be adapted to fit the North American context.
