CrossWalk LCRRFB
Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons

Crosswalk-Rapid-Flash-Beacon-128x300The LightCast Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (LCRRFB) is a device using LED flashing beacons in combination with pedestrian warning signs, to provide a high-visibility strobe-like warning to drivers when pedestrians use a crosswalk. In general, LCRRFBs are a visual cue that pedestrians may begin crossing the roadway at any time. They are always accompanied by crosswalk markings and signs. According to a recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, LCRRFBs were found to increase the effectiveness  in causing drivers to yield to pedestrians from 0-26% to 72-96%.  In summary, this was a two year study that focused on replacing traditional LED flashing beacons with the LCRRFBs in order to decrease the number of pedestrian fatalities caused by non-yielding drivers. The flashing pattern can be activated with pushbuttons or automated (e.g., video or infrared) pedestrian detection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Key Benefits of LCRRFBs: 

1. LCRRFBs are a lower cost alternative to traffic signals and hybrid signals.

2. LCRRFBs at pedestrian crosswalks are dramatically more effective at increasing driver yielding rates to pedestrians than traditional overhead beacons.(see study mentioned above)

3. LCRRFBs stutter flash may elicit a greater response from drivers than traditional methods.
