A landslide on road PR-157 near Km 14.7 in Orocovis, Puerto Rico.
available for the island (since most of our intersections have traffic
signals). A redundancy approach in a technology-dependent culture
means to be less dependent on technology in high-risk areas where
there are intersections, high-speed corridors, and school zones. The
same applies to transit operations and pedestrians' safety.

Reflections
Finally, as an ITE member I have never imagined how ITE could
change my life. As a member of the ITE-PR Section I would like to
give special thanks to Shawn Leight, Past President of ITE International. The ITE-PR Section's Annual Technical Meeting 2017 was
cancelled due to these hurricanes, and Shawn had planned to visit
us for that event. He looked forward to getting in contact with the
members of the local board. In our situation, knowing that he was
interested and committed to helping us, was very refreshing. He
organized a GoFundMe account to support the recovery through
Mi Casa Resistente, a non-profit foundation of the Puerto Rico
College of Engineers and Land Surveyors to build eco-friendly and
economic houses in the island (http://noticiasprtv.com/instituto-ingenieros-transportacion-entregan-donativo-proyecto-casa-resistente/). Shawn visited us in April 2018, and his visit was just
extraordinary: his presentations, interest in knowing the real impacts
of the hurricanes, observations of the recovery efforts, among many
other sharing experiences, brought us the support that we needed.
Receiving this kind of support made real changes in how members
like me see ITE as an organization. Knowing that, even physically
apart, we are close to ITE International has motivated me as a
professional in the transportation engineering field. itej
