LED lights on road crossings could prevent 7,000 accidents involving pedestrians each year.

The addition of reactive LED lights at pedestrian crossings could significantly reduce the number of people killed and injured on our roads each year, a prototype design suggests.

Called ‘Line of Sight’, this crossing of the future has been created by a London design team tasked with creating a safer system for pedestrians to get from one side of the road to the other.

The design has won the praise of one road safety charity and MP, with a fully working concept created in the UK capital to showcase its effectiveness.
