People frequently ask our traffic engineering staff, “Do you really sit on the side of the road and count cars?” The answer to that is yes, but we also have many other ways to measure and record traffic on roadways and at intersections.
Two years ago, we wrote about the annual Alabama Section Institute of Transportation Engineers (ALSITE) meeting that included an afternoon devoted to safety. Sain’s Vice President/Organization Development, Becky White, led this interactive and engaging session. This year’s meeting was held June 3-5, 2015 at The Beach Club in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and since safety has only continued to become more and more important, this was one of the overall themes for several sessions.
After being an active member of Alabama Section Institute of Transportation Engineers (ALSITE) since 2005 and serving as Secretary/Treasurer and Vice President, I’m excited to fill the role as President for 2015.
