Santa Rita Cross Walk

Original post made by Ron on Sep 10, 2007

The long cross walk across Santa Rita (in front of Hollywood Video) now has some impressive warning features - runway type strobe lights imbedded into the pavement and flashing lights on poles. These activate when a pedestrian pushes a button at either end of the cross walk.

These are very effective and I think will help decrease the ped vs auto accidents that this particular cross walk has experienced so far. But drivers - do not become complacent to the use of the warning lights indicating a pedestrian!! Drivers must always approach un-controlled intersections (no stoplight or no stop sign) looking for pedestrians on the curb or already on the street, whether or not there are warning lights!
