Since 2013 Shared Zones are implemented in the Austrian road traffic regulations. Numerous cities and communities made use of this option and have built Shared Zones. Shared Zones are a measure for traffic calming. They should provide equality in the use of the road space, on certain street sec-tions, for all road users. Therefore, they are a popular political measure for traffic calming, especially in town and village centres. Particularly with a good planning and implementation a social and economic promoting effect can be achieved. Shared Zone Projects require certain prerequisites, especially in terms of settlement, utilisation and traffic structures. Additionally the participation of citizens in the planning process plays an important role. Therefore this paper raises the question, which quality the Shared Zones in Austria have, considering of the planning, design and evaluation. For this purpose, ten Shared Zones in Austria were selected. The Zones were documented photo-graphically and surveyed during an on-site inspection. In the literature research criteria, from Swiss, German and Austrian literature, have been elaborated as a basis for the evaluation of the Shared Zones. The rating of the ten Shared zones shows a heterogeneous picture. The realization of the Shared Zones took place on a very diverse quality level. The results show that the proportion of mo-torized personal transport and non-motorized personal transport plays an important role. Further-more, due to missing legal regulations, important elements for planning and evaluating are missing on some Shared Zone Projects. In this context the need of homogenization, in terms of legal regulations, arises.
