Safety Management

Pedestrian signal lights

The pedestrian signal lights should correspond to the universal traffic signal colors. Red to stop and Green to cross. In New Jersey and some other states, the colors are orange to stop and white to go. Those colors may not be easily recognized in another language. Crossing a street should not make you hesitate to think if it is safe or not. The universal color of Red and Green will elicit a quicker response when faced... more »

Safety Management

Using computer vision to detect pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle near-misses and high risk events

Using computer vision, video cameras, and AI to detect, count, measure speed, and intent on pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicles at intersections, crosswalks, multimodal lanes and other higher-risk sites. We are using edge computing, computer vision, and deep learning neural networks to automatically detect presence, count, and measure speed of pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles to inform traffic signaling systems and digital... more »

Why is this a priority and what are the benefits for the State/County/City?

This idea is aligned with Vision Zero and traffic safety goals ... as well as public health goals (e.g. touchless cross walks). The technology can be used in urban, suburban, and highway scenarios. Data is generated so transportation engineers can remotely monitor traffic risk scenarios for both planning and real time operational purposes.

Mobility and Operations

SnowCATs - Snow Clearance Assistance Teams

PROBLEM:

Plowing snow from NJDOT roadway travel lanes during storms is the agency's highest priority to maintain mobility and access for emergency services. However, emergency plowing creates snow banks piled into corners of intersections, onto sidewalks and into bus stops and bus priority / shoulder lanes. Without post-snow-event clearance actions, these locations become impassable barriers that increase the risk of... more »

Idea Submitted by Jeffrey Vernick

List your Agency /Division / Bureau, County, City Univ. or Other North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority

Why is this a priority and what are the benefits for the State/County/City?

Improved safety, operations and access for all modes of transportation after snow events

Potential reduction in motorist and pedestrian lawsuits

Potential cost savings resulting from reduction in roadway pavement damage due to impeded drainage and refreezing.

Potential damage cost and delay reductions due to crash incident factor mitigation.

Creates an organized and systematic post event snow-management process suitable for ongoing applications.

Offers opportunity to better coordinate post-event snow clearance with NJ TRANSIT and county / municipal DPW crews and programs

Encourages use of public transportation removing personal vehicles from roadways assisting roadway plowing and clearance operations.
