Pedestrian signal lights trending idea

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.

Vertical Cities – Reduce need for transportation and fuel consumption

In order to fit the ever increasing population into the same size areas, we have been growing our cities vertically for decades. However, we are still doing so based on the same old two dimensional zoning structure. We should modify the zoning laws to allow for vertical cities.

Using humor in roadside Dynamic Message Signs

Recently, towns such as Robbinsville have taken to using humor in dynamic message signs in an effort to warn drivers to slow down, obey traffic laws, drive safely, and otherwise make the road a safer place.
