Although the street was once a multi-use space, the rise of vehicles has resulted in the street being regarded as a place for motorists with the primary purpose of moving vehicles quickly. Home zone represents an opportunity to restore the role of streets as a shared space to be used by pedestrians and cyclists as well as motorists with the privilege of pedestrians over the other road users. The most important aim of a Home Zone is to improve the quality of life in residential streets by making them
places for people not for vehicles. Research conducted on residents’ feelings about their neighbourhoods before and after implementing Home Zone show, if principles of Home Zone design are fully implemented, Home Zones can be safe, secure, pleasant, and attractive areas which not only decrease through traffic and vehicles’ speed but also improve social interactions and residents’ quality of life.
