Pedestrian zones (also known as pedestrian precincts or car-free zones) are areas of a city or town restricted to use by people on foot or human-powered transport such as bicycles, with non-emergency motor traffic not allowed.

If there is signage which indicates that cycling is prohibited in a pedestrianised area then cycling is definitely forbidden. However, should there be no local bye-law signage apparent, cyclists should give priority to any pedestrian in the area and should be extremely careful when proceeding.

A Pedestrian zone scheme restricts motorised traffic to non-resident vehicles on the streets of the zone during the times of operation. The area is monitored by unattended cameras mounted on lamp columns or posts at the entry points of a zone.
