The City of Vancouver is testing out a new type of pedestrian crossing.
A “rapid flashing beacon” will be set up so that pedestrians can activate a high-intensity amber light to alert drivers and cyclists they’re going to cross.
They’re typically installed where drivers rarely stop to let them do so.
The beacons will be installed at Victoria Drive and Grant Street, West Boulevard and 42nd Avenue, and Elliot Street and Waverly.
They have already been tested in a few Lower Mainland cities and in the U.S.
