Complete Streets and Goods Movement: The Canadian Experience
The efficient movement of goods is important for urban residents' quality of life and economic prosperity. This means that goods movement must be well integrated with the movement of people. Complete Streets policies and guides aim to achieve this integration. Many cities have developed Complete Streets guides or policies and are now acting on their implementation--see Figure 1 for an example.

Complete Streets, COVID-19, and Creating Resilient Communities
Over the past decade, many communities across North America have seen an increase in the need and demand for streets that support biking, walking, and rolling. That's because having active transportation infrastructure isn't just about Saturday bike rides--it's a key contributor to healthy communities that are resilient and equitable, and provide safe, reliable, and affordable access to jobs, healthcare, the grocery store, places of worship, and schools.

Request for Examples of Decorate Crosswalks
ITE frequently gets requests related to its position or available information on decorative pedestrian crossings. While FHWA has a policy and clarification memo on this topic, ITE does not have a position but does have a number of ongoing efforts related to pedestrian crossing safety. We are interested in collecting information from members to better understand the locations and characteristics of active installations of these decorative crossings. ITE may then use this information to develop a White Paper, Informational Report, or other technical product on this topic.

An Explanation of Mats Järlström's Extended Kinematic Equation
Since the yellow indication was first added to traffic signals in 1920, the proper interval duration has been robustly debated.1 Seemingly, the timing of the yellow indication appears straightforward. However, determining the illumination interval is quite intricate since it is part of a complex system of physical and human-made laws, technology, and human behavior that all must operate compatibly.

An Extended Yellow Change Interval Solution Derived from GHM's Critical Distance
The critical distance is the foundation to Gazis, Herman and Maradudin's (GHM) universally adopted minimum yellow traffic signal timing solution presented in their 1960 paper, "The Problem of the Amber Signal Light in Traffic Flow" [1]. However, GHM's (permissive [2]) minimum yellow signal duration is limited in its application since they only accounted for vehicles moving at constant velocity traversing a minimum safe and comfortable stopping distance referenced a level intersection's stopping line, aka GHM's critical distance.

Guidelines for Determining Traffic Signal Change and Clearance Intervals
ITE has concluded a years-long effort to issue guidance on yellow change and red clearance intervals for signalized intersections. The final version of the Recommended Practice Guidelines for Determining Traffic Signal Change and Clearance Intervals (RP-040B) has been adopted by the ITE International Board of Direction and is now available.1
