‘Rate My Signals’ allows Dublin City residents to report traffic lights issues

Dublin City Council has gone live with its ‘Rate My Signals’ reporting tool which allows people to log traffic light issues such as long waiting time, not enough green time to clear a junction, or traffic lights systems not detecting bicycles.

The map-based tool, which IrishCycle.com reported on in February, is now available to use at: ratemyservice.eu/TrafficSignalFeedback.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

Dublin City Council said: “The Traffic Control team in DCC’s Civics office will use the analytics generated from the feedback to improve how they operate the City’s traffic signals. This is done by more efficiently calibrating DCC’s traffic signals to support multiple road users, especially pedestrians and cyclists.”

The council added: “It is also done by introducing initiatives to improve accessibility at junctions for vulnerable road users such as children, older people, people with disabilities, or those with additional accessibility requirements.”

Funding was provided by the BE-GOOD project, part of EU’s Interreg North-West Europe programme.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.
