overview

OVERVIEW

Embedded in the pavement and oriented to face oncoming traffic, in-road warning lights flash in unison once activated to alert drivers of pedestrians actively crossing the road. This popular, MUTCD-compliant option has a low profile, allowing vehicles and vulnerable road users to safely pass over it at:

  • School zone crossings
  • Multi-lane uncontrolled crossings
  • High-speed pedestrian crossings
