Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons - A few City streets and several state routes in Springfield have crosswalks equipped with "RRFBs". These high-intensity LED strobe lights are also pedestrian activated and give the crosswalk more visibility.
Motorists are required by law to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, with our without strobe lights. However, these lights can be seen by motorists' even if they are still far away and give therefore drivers more time to come to a stop for a person trying to cross.
Pedestrians still must wait for cars to stop and verify that each traffic lane is clear before crossing. Click here for a flyer.
