Based on the answers, the survey was formed about the problems and solutions for accessibility in opens spaces of pedestrian traffic. The survey was oriented to persons with mobility and visual disability and aims to highlight the criticalities and benefits produced by three different urban spaces, such as parking lots, streets and squares and also to grade the perceived importance of various problems and solutions by persons with disabilities (motor and visual).
