ICP and PICP naturally invoke reduced speeds, demarcating zones by texture, color, and pattern.

Excellent for creating woonerfs, or home zones (an area, usually residential, where motorists and other users share the street without boundaries such as lanes and curbs). Woonerfs are included in equivalent provisions for walking.

ICP and PICP excel at creating a sense of place and defining a focal-point, intimately detailed and purposed for foot traffic, inviting common areas and gathering places.
