Yes in many countries in Europe, you have "tactile trails", often found in major train stations, city centres and shopping malls. Whereas in the UK it seems that tactile paving alerts that you are now entering this zone, whether it be stairs, crossing areas/road, cycle paths or pedestrian paths.
Looks like there are some loaded questions on parking controls "What should we be doing to reduce any impact on businesses in town centres?" and "
What other arrangements should be considered to deliver parking improvements that help support town centre regeneration?"
Yes. That one got a clear "I call bullsh!t" explanation from me...
