I hereby express my support of the PROWAC report. Detectable warning signs where vehicular traffic is a danger, and audible traffic signals are an integral part of ensuring that persons with visual impairments will be able to travel safely on pedestrian walkways.
As a totally blind person I have many times walked out into traffic because there was no discernible curb, and risked crossing busy intersections when I wasn't sure the "walk" signal was in my favor. Detectable warning signals and audible traffic signals would contribute greatly toward making my pedestrian travel, and those of my peers a safe and trouble-free endeavor.
