CROSSING THE STREET
It is difficult to cross the street because of high traffic volume or speed.
Effective traffic management can address concerns about traffic speed and volume. Many traffic management tools restrict traffic movement. In most cases the least restrictive method of solving a traffic management problem is not only the most cost effective solution, but also the one most easily accepted by both motorists and pedestrians. Most tools addressing crossing challenges are engineering treatments, but tools from the enforcement, education, and planning toolboxes are also important in addressing driver and pedestrian behavior, street types, and land uses.
Under each toolbox listed below, you have been directed to categories of tools. Selecting an individual category will link you to the tools from that category that can best be used to address difficult crossing conditions.
