Question of the Month: Traffic Signals
Almost half of all traffic collisions in Boulder occur at intersections. To help pedestrians, cyclists and drivers move safely and efficiently, the city has about 150 traffic signals.
Changes to how traffic signals work can help make intersections safer. At the same time, slowing down traffic can have unintended consequences, like causing people to seek alternate routes on neighborhood side streets, or even frustrating drivers to the point where they may make bad decisions.
The city is currently updating its traffic signal policies and wants to inform and seek feedback from the community about potential changes.
