Caution Warning Signs Can Help Reduce Pedestrian Accidents

Strategically placed pedestrian crossing signs, such signs with pictorials of people walking or crossing the street are an effective way of reducing driver speed in residential communities as well as busy city streets. By making motorists aware that people may be crossing the street at an upcoming crosswalk or intersection, drivers can be better prepared to scan and slow down for these pedestrians. Moreover, a pedestrian crossing sign can help such pedestrians find a safer place to cross the street while minding traffic laws.
