Pedestrian signal lights trending idea In Reserve

Last Edited by IdeasAdmin2

The pedestrian signal lights should correspond to the universal traffic signal colors. Red to stop and Green to cross. In New Jersey and some other states, the colors are orange to stop and white to go. Those colors may not be easily recognized in another language. Crossing a street should not make you hesitate to think if it is safe or not. The universal color of Red and Green will elicit a quicker response when faced with a safety issue.
