Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) are pedestrian-activated, high-intensity flashing amber warning lights that notify drivers when a pedestrian is entering the crosswalk. RRFBs are supported by multiple state and federal research reports, including FHWA research that shows Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons improve pedestrian safety by:
- Improving driver yield rates up to 96% in some locations
- Improving pedestrian safety even across wide, high-speed multi-lane roads
- Increasing driver yield rates 73% over traditional beacon systems i.e. side-mounted and overhead beacons
- Maintaining appropriate driver yield behavior over several years
