John Sangster at TEDxVT 2012: Can we live with traffic?


John Sangster

Speaker 2012; Graduate Student, Civil Engineering

John joined the workforce after obtaining his BS degree in 2002. After the birth of his second child, he abandoned the idea of being satisfied with a job that didn't include teaching, so he pursued and completed his Masters degree. He is now working towards his Ph.D. while raising his three kids. It is building safer roads for when his kids are driving that motivates him to pursue his Ph.D. and career. His talk focuses on the inherent problems of conventional signalized intersections, and seeks to shed light on known solutions that are not being widely implemented.
