Local ABC affiliate WFTS Tampa Bay spoke to the City of Lakeland recently about its installation of hybrid detection sensors and automated traffic signal performance measures software as part of its Intersection Collision Safety Program.
The program, which utilizes a combination of Iteris' Vantage Vector® Hybrid detection solution and the Iteris SPM™ platform, is focused on reducing red-light related crashes at four key intersections, with a view to presenting the resulting data to the Florida Department of Transportation for approval of a more broad rollout.
The sensors are up and running at Memorial Boulevard and Dr. Martin Luther King Street, Massachusetts Avenue, Bartow Road and North Crystal Lake Drive. As well as South Florida Avenue and Beacon Road in Lakeland.
