Module D - Slide 15


The goal of this prioritization tool is to develop a score that reflects the relative crossing difficulty of a crosswalk for pedestrians who are blind. One of the features of this tool is that it provides scores for each crosswalk rather than for the intersection as a whole. That's because there may be some crosswalks at an intersection that are much more difficult than others, for example, crossing the major street at an intersection. More points or  a higher score indicates a greater crossing difficulty for blind pedestrians and therefore greater priority for APS. We're going to talk through each factor on the tool in this module.
