How it works
RRFBs are high intensity yellow warning lights that flash rapidly when actuated by a pedestrian push button. On each approach to the crosswalk there are lights on both the left and right hand side which ‘frame the crosswalk’. A smaller light is directed across the crosswalk to provide confirmation that the system is activated. Additional lights can be mounted in the median or in advance of the crosswalk.
The following map provides the operating capacity of the R920 Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB). Operating capacity is the number of daily activations the system can support year-round at the location.
