Carmanah crosswalk solutions are ideal for communities looking to transform their urban landscapes into vibrant, livable space shared by all modes of transportation. A perfect fit for Smart Growth America initiatives, Complete Street projects, and communities seeking LEED ND certification, Carmanah Rectangular Rapid Flashing Crosswalk Beacons (RRFBs) are either solar or AC-powered and install quickly onto existing sign posts.
Communities like those in Bend, Oregon have noted a 60% increase in driver yield compliance at high-traffic crosswalks with the installation of rectangular rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) technology.
Here are some other real world examples of what can be accomplished with flashing beacon technology.
