The TAPCO Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) Crosswalk System is a one-of-kind crosswalk solution proven to improve driver yield rates by as much as 90% at uncontrolled pedestrian crossings. Ideal for high-speed and multilane crosswalks, the TAPCO RRFB Crosswalk System flashes warning lights using the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) specified alternating WW+S (combination wig-wag and simultaneous) pattern upon activation.
With the capability to enhance safety through user-actuated or passive detection activation, this popular crosswalk safety treatment utilizes alternating flash patterns that command driver attention day and night – making it the go-to solution for traffic professionals nationwide.
In March of 2018, the FHWA issued a new interim approval (IA-21) for the RRFB. To learn about the key changes and how to obtain IA-21 approval, read our Safe Travels® Blog 4 Simple Steps To Request RRFB Approval.

Upon system activation, the BlinkerBeam® transmitter radio sends wireless signals to BlinkerBeam® receiver radios, triggering each associated alert device to activate.
Enhance this system with the use of BlinkLink® Powered by TAPCO. Easy-to-use, cloud-based application cities utilize to manage, schedule, control and monitor system-wide time clocks and other intelligent warning systems.
Active infrared and microwave technologies work together to provide precise presence and accurate vehicle and pedestrian motion detection.
TAPCO's pedestrian activated RRFB systems have produced 80% to 90% driver compliance in yielding to pedestrians at high-risk uncontrolled crossings. When activated, the LED arrays flash an FHWA specified, alternating 'wig-wag' pattern. Side-mounted LED arrays flash concurrently to advise pedestrians that the units are flashing. This is the highest yielding rate of all devices not featuring a red display, and up to 4 times greater than standard round beacons. RRFBs cost less than other devices with similar vehicular yield rates.
