Abstract

PURPOSE:To prevent traffic accident from occurring at a pedestrian crossing by operating a display switch installed near a starting area of the pedestrian crossing and letting a car driver to know that a pedestrian is just beginning to cross the street. CONSTITUTION:A display 4, which is provided with a light emitting diode and an alarm buzzer, is installed near a pedestrian crossing 1 in an opposed state to the advancing direction of a car, and what is more, at a position where the display can be seen easily. A switch 3 of the display 4, which a pedestrian can operate, is installed in a cross-starting area 2 on both sides of a road of the pedestrian crossing 1. The display 4 is adapted to or flash or sound by the switching operation of the switch 3. The switch 3 is a pushbutton switch, a sensor or a one operated by treading of a pedestrian who is going to cross the street or the like. The operation is arranged to come to a halt in a definite time after the operation. The emission of this light and sound serve to inform a driver (a) of the presence of a pedestrian who is going to cross the road.
