Roadway Design:

Design and operational elements of the roadway affect the ability of pedestrians to safely and easily cross streets. A geometric element such as street width affects the time needed to cross the street, whereas an operational parameter like traffic direction (one-way vs. two-way) affects the number of potential conflicts between motorists and crossing pedestrians.
