Photos/Examples of Pedestrian Access:

    Great example of a clear pedestrian access point across a McDonald's vehicular drive-thru lane
  Large-format retail parking lots should look to place pedestrian access paths perpendicular to main entrances in order to keep pedestrians off of driving lanes.
  This example shows a narrowing of the street via curb bump outs in order to accomodate pedestrians 
  Pedestrian access point connecting public sidewalk to retail entrance. 
  Use of non-asphalt materials in identifying pedestrian access paths is very important.
