[Cyclelicious] New comment on Caltrans response to questions about bicycle detec....

Fritz has left a new comment on your post "Caltrans response to questions about bicycle detec...":

Bob's the engineer :-)

Quickly, though, Bob made recommended improvements to Caltrans standards for inductive loop detectors. Caltrans ignored/rejected those recommendations in favor of pushing for new technology.

Unfortunately, the video detectors are a lot more expensive than the old loop detectors. Bob can comment more, but I think the concern is that local governments will forgo making any changes at all if their only option is something that costs an order of magnitude (or more) than their existing installations.

Bob, can you clarify?
