My name is Andrea Giudice. I am blind and want to let you know that I give my
exuberant and total support to the existence and increase of Accessible
Pedestrian Signals and Detectable Warnings at intersections. I live in
the grater San Francisco Bay area and travel throughout the country. I can give you enumerable examples of how crucial Accessible Pedestrian Signals and Detectable Warnings are at intersections.
I have heard nothing about discontinuing the incorporating of crossing indicators for pedestrians who do not need accommodation in terms of size or contrast of signage or other forms of audible or detectable crossing indicators. Why then is this even being considered for Accessible Pedestrian Signals and Detectable Warnings? It is a crime to deny people with disabilities the same safety at intersections that is granted to our non-disabled partners in pedestriandom.
With Kindest regards,
