WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. (My TV20 News at 10) --- They're designed to make traffic flow easier.
But, that's often forced some who use them to hit the brakes. Tonight, there's reason to feel better and safer regarding roundabouts.
That's what you hear if you're standing about the roundabout at Maple and Drake Roads in West Bloomfield. It's the first Oakland County intersection to have the HAWK system.
The chirping draws blind people to a button. They push it, and a light stops traffic. It also lets people know when it's safe to cross.
Attorney Richard Bernstein sued Oakland County in federal court to get HAWK installed at all roundabouts. Bernstein, who is blind, points out the system helps any handicapped person.
Oakland County agreed last week to install HAWK at all its roundabouts. There's no word how long it will take to complete that work.
