Pedestrians at Traffic Signals

I had a nice conversation with a researcher from the University of Manitoba on Friday pertaining to our efforts on Pedestrians. As I was reviewing our study of the HAWK (Pedestrian hybrid beacon) and the Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon, it was clear that while we have learned a lot, there remains much to do to improve the conditions for pedestrians. I have been asked to participate in a National Cooperative Highway Research Program project on updating the Signal Timing Manual and incorporating more information about pedestrians at intersections.
