Testing a newly installed crosswalk warning light system at Sawgrass Mall in Sunrise, Florida.
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.

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.
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.
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.
