FHWA Publishes Guide for Improving Pedestrian Safety

FHWA has published an updated “Guide for Improving Pedestrian Safety at Uncontrolled Crossing Locations” to help agencies choose countermeasures based on roadway characteristics and pedestrian safety issues. The guide includes information on the rectangular rapid-flashing beacon (RRFB) countermeasure. RRFBs are active (user-actuated) or passive (automated detection) amber light-emitting diodes that use an irregular flash pattern at midblock or uncontrolled crossing locations, significantly increasing driver yielding behavior.



The FHWA guide is here.
