There are too many pedestrian-automobile collisions occurring today. With coordinated effort, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), municipalities, and product manufacturers are aiming to decrease these incidents—especially fatalities at mid-block locations. While there are a variety of treatments available, some solutions are much more effective at getting traffic to yield than others.
FHWA research shows that installing a marked crosswalk without additional crossing facilities does not result in vehicles stopping for pedestrians. Uncontrolled, marked crosswalks can be outfitted with compliant, pedestrian-activated warning beacons that notify drivers when pedestrians are entering crosswalks. Our solar and AC-powered circular crosswalk beacons have been installed across the US and Canada for 12+ years. These beacons are approved in the FHWA’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and can hit ITE intensity requirements. Support your Vision Zero and walkability initiatives with crosswalk flashing beacons.
Put our solar and AC-powered circular beacons to use at crosswalks
Watch our video to learn exactly where and how our circular beacons and RRFBs can be installed. Here are some highlights:
These flashing crosswalk lights are designed for intersections with major legs without a stop sign, mid-block crosswalks, roundabouts, and more
They don’t require specialized equipment and can install on existing signposts
With solar power, they install without costly trenching or traffic delays
