Small ideas can make Metro greater.

Make the dots on sign posts more color-blind friendly

On all sign posts, print the word color (ex. Blue on blue dot) so color-blind people can tell what line it is.

People who are color-blind have trouble determining which line is which, because they can't tell the color of the circles. My son-in-law has to ask people which line is which and sometimes gets no help because people just tell him to look at the posts.

I support this 100%. If I didn't know where I was going, I wouldn't be able to tell by the colors.

Easy Low Cost Fix - Giant colored dots with white colored text words of 'green/vert', 'yellow/jaune', 'blue/bleu', 'orange', 'red/rouge', and 'silver/gris' words in the center spelling the color of the dot. It also make use International Olympic Committee friendly since we use the two official languages of the Olympics. It helps improve the DC bid for summer games 2036.

Just use the new-style dots with the single capital letters in them. (B) = Blue, (G) = Green, (R) = Red, etc., just as used in the new maps.
