Thanks Idrees. Optimally we'd solve this through good design (I recently added the idea about displaying 3d-simulated crosswalks), but as with most traffic innovations, yes -- it would likely supplement/complement the current infrastructure until there was high confidence it could replace lights/crosswalks/etc. I see it initially as an appendage to streetlamps/poles.

Also, 66% of those households in Pittsburgh are low-income:

Agreed -- I'd actually assumed it was a proposal given the depth of supporting data and well-framed argument. Please do submit it Kathryn Schlesinger !
