The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), the successor to ISTEA, directs that pedestrian safety considerations such as the installation of audible traffic signals be included in new transportation plans and projects. This article discusses the topic of accessible pedestrian signals (APSs), with sections devoted to: information requirements at intersections; accessible traffic signal technologies; determining when to install APSs; pedestrian detection technology; the matrix of APS functional characteristics; and APS product sources, among others.
