My name is Ernie Wright [...]. I am a member of the Pennsylvania Council of the
Blind, an affiliate of the American Council of the Blind.
I am writing to express my support for audible traffic signals. I am visually impaired and travel independently locally and to larger cities. It is very difficult for me to tell when the light is green or if the walk light is on. I do listen for the traffic, but right on red makes the situation unsafe, since I have a glare problem, no peripheral vision and very little central vision Thus, an audible traffic signal would make this situation at busy and noisy intersections safer.
