Smart zebra crossing used to promote road safety in eastern China

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
In an effort to improve road safety at night, the town of Suqian in Jiangsu Province, China has installed a smart zebra crossing, which has LED lights embedded in the road alongside it, reports GB Times.


The lights begin to flash when pedestrians step on to the crossing, while a traffic sign with the words ‘Yield to pedestrians’ lights up. A warning notice autonomously warns drivers that they are approaching the crossing.

According to a report by People.cn, more than 90 per cent of drivers in Suqian would stop at zebra crossings if they are able to see pedestrians clearly.
