as a Research Scientist specializing in traffic safety and visual
perception at LRI, a private consulting firm, where he was principal
investigator on FHWA contracts "Relative Visibility of Increased
Legend Size vs. Brighter Materials," "Changeable Message
Sign Visibility," and "Visibility Requirements for
Symbolic Traffic Signals.”
Phil began working at the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute (PTI)
in November 1994 on the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) contract “Hazard
Markers for Older Drivers” and was soon named co-principal
investigator on the 3M/USDOT sponsored research project “Legibility
of Conventional Road Guide Sign Typography and Format.” The
latter research resulted in the development of the ClearviewHwy font.
ClearviewHwy is under review by the FHWA for use on all highway guide
signs, representing the first change in guide sign font allowed by
the FHWA in over fifty years. In his tenure at PTI, Phil has also
been the principal investigator on evaluations of commercial sign
performance issues for the on-premise sign industry; guide sign font,
arrow, and message visibility for the National Park Service (which
resulted in a new font “NPS Roadway” that will be used
on all future NPS guide sign installations); slow moving vehicle
emblem visibility for the American Civil Liberties Union; and changeable
message sign issues for the FHWA and the Access Board. For the past
nine years as a researcher at PTI, Phil has also conducted research
in the varied areas of ride quality evaluation, drunk driving enforcement
campaign assessment, and the development of bicycle friendly shoulder
rumble strips for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
Throughout his career in transportation research, Phil has been involved
in numerous research projects investigating human performance in
transportation. Phil’s expertise in the field of human interaction
with the roadway environment led to his selection as the chairman
of the National Academy of Sciences Transportation Research Board’s
(TRB) Committee on User Information Systems, a post he has served
for the past six years. As chair of TRB’s User Information
Systems Committee, Phil established TRB’s committee on Advanced
