    Hi all,

    I am new to ASCE and I am curious to know what issues everyone here is having in regards to traffic signal safety.  Our organization is having an open forum at our annual convention and expo in February to discuss the possibility of expanding into highway traffic signal safety.  The forum will address involvement of traffic signal device manufacturers and installers and is open to all traffic signal designers, installers, and manufacturers. Our organization as a whole focuses on improving roadway safety and saving lives.  One area that is on the rise nationwide for traffic fatalities is pedestrians, so I think that is one issue that we are going to discuss and try to address.  However, what other items should we focus on from your perspective?

    Dear Eric, I am not an expert in this area, but I am sure that if you ask this same question to my colleague, Victor Cantillo (vcantill@...) and share his answer with us, will be great!
