#15: A New and Improved Crosswalk
Crossing a busy street where there are no stoplights can be extremely stressful. Drivers are notorious for not letting pedestrians have the right-of-way, driving while on their phones, and generally not paying attention. This French concept is trying to prevent pedestrian-motorist accidents with this new crosswalk design.
It uses luminous paint for the pavement crosswalk, making it easy for everyone to see. Plus, there’s a light-up bollard that has very clear instructions about who can pass. There’s a bright red “stop” that lights up when motorists have to let pedestrians pass. It’s kind of just a new and improved version of a regular crosswalk, but it looks very nice.
