Some issues reviewed have included: locations where multiple crashes occurred, a significant accident has occurred or concern that there may be a future accident; complaints about poor sight distance at an intersection; evaluation of the location of a new crosswalk before installation; or proposed changes in traffic patterns to improve safety.
