Red Light Running could have been impacted by pedestrian countdowns but other
factors also probably involved include: City red light camera program (23 locations),
FYG ped. crossing warning signs, fixed and portable radar signs, yield to ped. signs,
more public safety outreach, etc.
MTA/DPT is testing several new pedestrian safety technologies & approaches:
Stockton/Jackson in Chinatown
