Increase the Safety of Your Most Dangerous Intersections

Every town has those few intersections that pose a more significant threat than other areas in town. In most cities, these intersections are those that have both heavy pedestrian traffic and heavy motor traffic. Increasing safety in these areas is of paramount importance for the city’s law enforcement.

Fortunately, there are a variety of traffic control products that can increase safety without requiring a huge investment or lots of manpower. Pedestrian hybrid beacons offer a reliable way to ensure that both pedestrians and motorists are well controlled at dangerous intersections.

Pedestrian hybrid beacons can be programmed to meet a variety of needs and to work well in a variety of intersection configurations. For example, the beacon can be programmed to flash for motorists only when pedestrians are in the crosswalk. This type of programming helps to prevent motorists who frequently travel the area from becoming desensitized to the beacon.

Hybrid beacons offer an extra measure of safety compared to other traffic control products because these can run off solar power. The beacons can be programmed to run primarily off solar power or to convert to solar power in the event of a power outage. Even in the worst storms, you can count on these beacons to continue to operate.

Your traffic control product vendor can provide you with the details about pedestrian hybrid beacons and other products designed to increase safety in your city. As your population grows, it’s important to reevaluate your traffic control and pedestrian safety needs periodically. Work with your vendor to determine the most appropriate products, based on the level of traffic flow and the number of pedestrians using the crossing on a daily basis. With the new products available in the marketplace, you can dramatically increase safety in your most dangerous intersections.
