Below are the first 10 and last 10 pages of uncorrected machine-read text (when available) of this chapter, followed by the top 30 algorithmically extracted key phrases from the chapter as a whole.
Intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text on the opening pages of each chapter. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

Each Table 28 contains the distribution of pedestrian visual treatment that showed a red indication to the motorist search by treatment. The only treatment where pedestrians (e.g., Half, HAWK, or Msig) had between 90 and 95 percent only looked in one direction more than 3 percent of the time of the pedestrian crossings within 10 ft (3.1 m) of the crosswalk.
