In-pavement lights alert motorists to the presence of a pedestrian crossing or preparing to cross the street. The amber lights are embedded in the pavement on both sides of the crosswalk and oriented to face oncoming traffic. In-road LED markers produce a bright, daytime-visible light focused directly in the driver’s line of sight clearly indicating the curve, hazard, crosswalk, variable lane, or lane edge. This requires no interpretation by the driver resulting in increased visibility.
When the pedestrian activates the system, either by using a push-button or through detection from an automated device, the lights begin to flash in unison, warning the motorist that a pedestrian is in the vicinity of the crosswalk ahead. The flashing LEDs shut off after a set period of time, i.e., the time required for a pedestrian to safely cross the street. Ideal for mid-block locations.
