Pedestrian crossing control helps traffic engineers, urban planners and road designers meet the challenge of safely accommodating pedestrians while also serving the needs of other road users. This webinar will lead participants through the updated content in TAC’s Pedestrian Crossing Control Guide, 3rd Edition, which features the introduction of two new treatments: enhanced crosswalks with side-mounted signs (GM+), and rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs).
