  1. 1.Sound Sigmals at traffic lights for the blind:
    An excellent idea. But most sighted pedestrians will
    willingly volunteer to lead a blind person waiting to
    cross. The costs of installing sound signals would be
    considerable.

    2.Repair damaged pavements:
    This is an URGENT need.

    3.Lengthen time for crossing streets at traffic lights:
    This too is an URGENT need. The present timing of 10
    seconds was adopted with Olympic sprinters in mind.

    4.Diagonal crossing at junctions:
    An excellent idea.
