Fanshawe College Crosswalk in London, Ontario

Fanshawe College in London, Ontario recently installed three of our TS40 Pedestrian Crossing Flashing LED Edge Lit Signs to mark a dangerous crosswalk. Because of a sharp bend in the road, the crosswalk was not visible to approaching drivers. Two of the TS40s were placed adjacent to the crosswalk, and the third was placed ahead of the bend in the road to provide an early warning to drivers of the upcoming crosswalk. The signs feature a built-in photocell that automatically activates the sign LEDs at night.

CityScape Phoenix

CityScape Phoenix recently installed two of our TS40 Custom Flashing LED Edge Lit Signs marking the exits of its parking garage. The flashing signs read “CAUTION VEHICLE CROSSING” and are designed to warn pedestrians to watch for vehicles exiting the parking structure. These blind garage exits can be dangerous because exiting vehicles may not always see and yield to crossing pedestrians.

28 LED Traffic Signs Light the Way to Safer Casinos

Safer Roads at Luxor Casino

How can casinos keep patrons safe? How best to protect them as they venture onto the street? Luxor casino made safer roads by installing 28 of our LED traffic signs. They’re using flashing LED roadway traffic signs to increase driver awareness along the roadway and intersections near the casino.

Luxor has taken improved pedestrian safety and reduced liability by installing 28 systems of flashing LED traffic and pedestrian street signs.

LED Traffic Signs Create a Traffic Safety Zone

The series of lighted traffic sign systems run virtually the entire length of West Reno Ave in Las Vegas, Nevada. This comprehensive installation includes two types of LED traffic signs – both pedestrian crossing signs and stop signs. Each is outfitted with flashing LED lights around the edges.

See them on Google Streetview here.

When used together, these LED traffic signs create a road safety zone. This is an extremely effective way to gain driver attention in all kinds of weather and lighting conditions. The signs work especially well at night – when more people frequent the casinos.

A Viable and Affordable Way to Improve Safety

This is an extensive installation, not an expensive installation. Opting for a series of LED traffic signs is an affordable and effective way to address pedestrian safety concerns. Partly because of their affordability, LED traffic signs are becoming a more popular safety solution. For the price of a single signal you can address road safety concerns at multiple intersections.

Traffic Calming for Reduced Liability

Sometimes casinos are seen as having deep pockets. Unfortunately, this can make them frequent targets for litigation. Beyond the main benefit of keeping people safe, these systems may help with reducing the likelihood of lawsuits that often follow an accident or injury. Why would the Luxor casino gamble on a lawsuit? They keepi patrons safe along with lighted LED traffic signs proven to help.

14 Crosswalk Systems Boost Pedestrian Safety at Logan International Airport

Safer Pedestrians at Boston Logan Airport

One of America’s busiest airports just got safer. Boston’s Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts recently installed 14 of our LED crosswalk lighting systems at the airport.

Lighted Crosswalks Connect to Terminal

Each of the 14 systems are installed at crosswalks connecting airport terminals to nearby parking areas. Pedestrians walking across the road are made more visible by the safety lighting. The flashing array of roadway lighting draws driver attention to people attempting to cross.

Custom Combination of System Components

Each element of these safety systems has been custom selected to fit the needs of the site. Typical TS600 crosswalk warning light systems are augmented with flashing traffic signs. When activated, the crosswalk warning lights flash in conjunction with the LED traffic signs at each curb.

10 Crosswalk Safety Systems for Chevron Corporate Campus

Improving Crosswalk Safety at Chevron

Ten crosswalk warning systems are installed at the Chevron corporate campus in Bakersfield, CA. Ten systems combined create a large network of pedestrian safety lighting. This has the effect of creating an extensive safety zone around campus.

Long Lasting Crosswalk Lighting Systems

These are extremely durable lighting systems. Fixtures are installed directly in the roadway. Although designed to be virtually permanent, fixtures can be temporarily removed. This allows for easy maintenance and also facilitates street resurfacing projects. Ultra-bright LEDs flash, bringing driver attention to someone crossing the road. The lights also improve the rate of driver yielding to pedestrians waiting to cross the street.

Crosswalk Lighting for Worker Safety

There can often be hidden dangers present on the busy streets and roadways at a corporate campuses. Many corporations are beginning to recognize and more widely address pedestrian safety as a worker safety issue. crosswalk lighting, flashing roadway signs, and radar speed signs are proven to help.

Combined Systems Create Safety Zone

While crosswalk lighting is useful even in standalone installations, but Chevron’s approach is even more effective. They are creating a comprehensive safety zone. The effect of 10 systems used together is greater than ten systems separately. This virtual street safety zone improves crosswalk safety and protect workers. Drivers and pedestrians moving between buildings are more aware, with safer walking conditions for all.

Lighted Crosswalk Making Las Olas Boulevard Safer

Responding to Concerned Citizens

Fort Lauderdale, Florida officials recently installed one of our LED crosswalk lighting systems on Las Olas Blvd at SE 13th Street. The crosswalk is located where drivers leaving nearby shopping areas begin to speed up as they transition to a faster roadway.

The safety system was introduced in a response to a recent survey that found building “more walkable and bikeable streets” was one of the top requests made by citizens in the area. In Florida, from 2008 to 2011, 180 pedestrians were killed on Broward County roads – second only to Miami-Dade County.

Safer Streets in South Florida

A recent Sun Sentinel article describes the elevated need for this kind of system in the South Florida region:

“The lights are a first, and more importantly, a must. The $50,000 crosswalk makes its first debut on a public road in South Florida next month, and the new technology couldn’t come at a better time.

Pedestrian safety is always an issue in South Florida, a region that typically leads the nation in the number of pedestrian fatalities and hit-and-runs. Fortunately, studies show motorists brake sooner and yield the right-of-way to pedestrians when they see flashing lights or an illuminated crosswalk.”

The innovative traffic safety device is proven to reduce roadway accidents leading pedestrian injuries and fatalities, making in South Florida’s streets safer.

The system uses ultra-bright LEDs that can be seen up to 1,500 feet away – even in sunny daytime conditions. Now, as Las Olas drivers leave the main shopping areas they’ll have increased awareness of pedestrians in the roadway, both day and night. 

Two Crosswalk Lighting Systems for Jupiter, Florida’s Carlin Park

Addressing Pedestrian Safety Concerns

Carlin Park is being proactive about pedestrian safety. They recently ordered a pair of our crosswalk lighting systems to improve safety conditions at popular crossings near the beach.

A Safer Crossing

State Road A1A is a busy road with crosswalks leading directly to the ocean. Two sites in Jupiter, Florida’s Carlin Park were recognized as being less-than-safe. People have been pulling over, running across the busy road, viewing the ocean, then running back to their cars.

Crosswalk Lighting System

A six light Traffic Safety Corp. crosswalk lighting system is being installed at each of these two locations. The push button activated safety systems increases driver awareness of pedestrians crossing the road with flashing in-pavement lights. Installations are slated for later this year.
