How Bright Pedestrian Crossing Signs Improve SafetyWith the various types of safety signs you can find everywhere from residential to commercial settings, pedestrian crossing signs are among the most essential. Whether they’re placed near a parking lot or garage or in front of a school, these signs are imperative for keeping pedestrians safe.

In order to be visible in all sorts of weather conditions and during different hours of the day, these signs must feature the right level of brightness. That’s why they usually take on a fluorescent yellow green reflectivity. At Dornbos Sign and Safety, you’ll find different types of quality pedestrian crosswalk signs as well as mounting tools and accessories.

Abiding by State Law

Ensuring pedestrians are safe from incoming traffic is actually a legal regulation. When signs are in place, pedestrians can see where they should walk. The use of these safety signs has grown in popularity over the years to decrease the rates of accidents and fatalities by cautioning incoming motorists of pedestrians ahead of time, as well.

The United States Department of Transportation has been working hard on addressing new initiatives, using various tools and modes of research to highlight the best strategies for promoting pedestrian safety. Studies have actually shown that the placement of these signs on crosswalks has changed the behavior of motorists.
