17 I. Introduction II. Intersection Analysis III. Street Crossing Timings IV. Scanning to Monitor Traffic V. Additional Tools VI. References 17

18 Applying the information in Street Crossings for Travelers Who Are Visually Impaired helps travelers lower the inherent risk in crossing streets. Travelers who learn and apply this information will be safer and better able to travel independently in familiar and unfamiliar areas with less need for mobility instruction in the future. 18
