I am writing in support of the proposed regulations from the Public Rights of Way Advisory Committee. As a blind person, I believe that there is a need for detectable warnings and accessible pedestrian signals. As the environment becomes more complex, our safety depends on detectable warnings at places where vehicular traffic is likely to be found and accessible pedestrian signals. There are streets in the town of Westbury, Long Island (where I live) which I will not cross because I cannot see (nor can I hear) regular traffic patterns. I believe that the lives of blind people are at stake.
