#9: Luminous Bollards, France
France loves their luminous lights. This use of lighting is pretty neat because it centers on pedestrian safety, and it looks incredibly chic. These crosswalk bollards have your standard lights on top to allow for nighttime visibility. However, designers went the extra mile and installed LED lights along the bottom, too.
The soft blue light emanating from the bottom of the bollards adds extra light to the crosswalk. This allows pedestrians to see better in the dark. It also makes the crosswalk stand out more to drivers, making them less likely to speed through them. While we’re not sure how effective these blue lights are, they sure do look cool and futuristic.
