Street-embedded traffic lights installed for texting pedestrians in Bodegraven


The Dutch town of Bodegraven has come up with a clever new way of keeping phone-obsessed pedestrians safe as they cross the road.

A pilot programme has seen a strip LED traffic signals installed in the pavement that glow red or green, allowing pedestrians to see if it is safe to cross, even if their eyes are glued to their phone screens. 

At the moment, the clever system has only been installed at one junction in the town, but manufacturer HIG Traffic Systems hopes there is room for future expansion if the pilot proves successful.
