I was alarmed to read of opinion that street crossing
improvements are not needed or wanted by the blind. I am blind and do not
share this feeling. Frankly, I wish there were more. I have one in my
travels here in Atlanta, and in great peril in all the other intersections
I use on a regular basis. It is VERY difficult for me to know when to cross
streets. The old fashioned way of setting the signals has changed. Now, to
improve trafic flow, there are a multitude of signal combinations and they
very from block to block. Since I cannot see the walk signals, I do not
know often if it is safe to cross.
Please put your efforts into helping to make these safer crossings
available everywhere. Our lives depend very much on what you do.
