Audible traffic signals are a nice adjunct to mobility, but they should never, put that word in capital letters, bolded and italicized, never be used in place of good mobility skills. The very experience many have of people running red lights and turning against the law illustrates why safety for the blind must not be left in the hands of the driving public. I like audible traffic signals, but if they are too loud, they can mask quiet car sounds and many are hit because of this very fact.
