Join Dan Fuchs with Fuchs Traffic Technology, and Jose Rodriguez with Wilson & Company, Inc. as they update us on applications and technical requirements when using Accessible Pedestrain Signals and Flashing Yellow Arrow technology.  

An Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) and pedestrian pushbutton is an integrated device that communicates information about the WALK and DON'T WALK intervals at signalized intersections in non-visual formats (i.e., audible tones and vibrotactile surfaces) to pedestrians who are blind or have low vision.

 You should have noticed a new style of left-turn signal on many roads. Placed over the left-turn lane at an intersection, this new signal display includes a Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA). In coming years, this type of signal will replace the solid green left-turn signals that are now common. This change is the result of a national study conducted for the Federal Highway Administration, which demonstrated that the new signals help to prevent crashes, move more traffic through an intersection, and provide additional traffic management flexibility.
