Pedestrians, vehicles move simultaneously at intersections

March 29, 2010
By DAVE WERNER

At major intersections in Malone, where pedestrians have a "Walk/Don't Walk" signal, vehicular traffic is often allowed to proceed simultaneously with pedestrians after a 4-6 second delay. This is termed a "concurrent with green pedestrian delay" phase of the traffic signal and allows traffic moving parallel to the pedestrian to receive a green light 4-6 seconds after the pedestrian receives a walk signal, allowing vehicles to receive a green light sooner than if the pedestrian walk phase was "exclusive," meaning that no vehicles would receive a green light until the entire walk phase ended.
