I agree with what @Falls Church is saying too. I'm not sure what the term is but I'll call it a "forgiving environment". Another example I can think of are those ridges on the side of the road that alert a driver that they are going off the road. The intention was to prevent drivers from falling asleep at the wheel. This is forgiving, because otherwise we could say that if you fall asleep at the wheel, tough. I wish that traffic engineers also design a more forgiving environment for pedestrians.
