ARE PELICAN CROSSINGS SAFE?

This article describes three GLC studies designed to investigate the safety of pelican crossings. Some pelicans had been converted from zebras, others were sited where there was no previous crossing. Shows that accidents increased, unless the crossing had guard rails and the road had been treated with anti-skid surfacing. In particular accidents rose sharply at sites where vehicle-actuated pelican crossings were the first ever crossing facility. Concludes that in London safety performance of pelican crossings has so far been disappointing.(a) /TRRL/
