Smart zebra crossing used to promote road safety in eastern China

In an effort to improve road safety at night, the town of Suqian in Jiangsu Province, China has installed a smart zebra crossing, which has LED lights embedded in the road alongside it, reports GB Times.

The lights begin to flash when pedestrians step on to the crossing, while a traffic sign with the words ‘Yield to pedestrians’ lights up. A warning notice autonomously warns drivers that they are approaching the crossing.

According to a report by People.cn, more than 90 per cent of drivers in Suqian would stop at zebra crossings if they are able to see pedestrians clearly.
