Abstract: This paper addresses the impact of median parking areas, implemented in 2007 along Recanto das Emas Avenue in Brazil's Federal District, on road safety. The analysis is grounded on Brazilian legislation, technical manuals, and data from the Statistics Division of the Federal District's Traffic Department (Gerest-Detran/DF) regarding types of accidents and traffic volume both before and after median parking in the area was regulated. The lack of a compulsory physical barrier and pedestrian traffic along the avenue are among the factors which have helped increase the number of accidents. Interference with the city's cycling network as well as parking policies also affect the application of sustainable mobility.
