Promote a safe environment that encourages students to walk and bike to school. Flashing beacons on school zone warning signs draw drivers’ attention to posted speed limits in a flash. These crosswalk flashing beacon systems are also recommended for use under Safe Routes to School programs and can help improve community walkability initiatives.
Flashing beacons are active traffic control devices that can help condition motorists to change their behavior when the devices are activated. Passive devices—like straightforward school zone signs—identify a crossing, but require the driver to determine whether they need to adjust their speed, based on the current time of day. With the addition of a beacon flashing during the hours the speed limit is in effect, drivers are told when they need to adjust their speed—no guesswork required.
