As a person who is blind and who travels daily in my town and, occasionally in
others, I am very much in favor of accessible traffic signals. Although I've
never been injured by a vehicle while traveling, I've had many close calls.
There is no doubt in my mind that an accessible traffic signal would have
prevented these near-incidents and would also help prevent actual accidents
which could very well cause injury or even death.
I strongly support accepting the recommendations of the PROWAC report. Thank you
for your consideration. Regards,
