In-ground LED warning lights on crosswalks
For pedestrians who are phone-obsessed – Many pedestrians cross the road while on their phones, paying little attention to the normal traffic lights. In-ground traffic lights are thus likely to be more noticeable to these phone-obsessed individuals while they are staring at their screens
How about these crosswalk barriers? They can be an excellent way to protect pedestrians, whether they are paying attention or not.
They are also being used in Germany!
In-ground pedestrian warning lights are becoming common on crosswalks – several countries, such as China, have deployed them.
Smartphones have become one of the biggest threats to pedestrian safety. Short of banning their use on the roads, this could be the next best solution!
