LDC driving lesson 10 - Traffic Signals and Pedestrian Crossings - key learning points
Part of the revolutionary LD System of learning to drive from LDC. This video shows the key points you need to learn in preparation for the driving lesson on Traffic Signals and Pedestrian Crossings. If you want to see this approach in practice view the videos in the playlists entitled "Student centred learning" where Bob Morton supports Bobby-Jo as she learns to drive. Too many driving instructors focus too much attention on telling their pupils what to do and what to think! This approach only fosters dependency, doubt and blind obedience, such that once the test is passed they do all the things they were told not to do. The LDC approach is designed to foster self-reliance, confidence and responsibility resulting in safer drivers who learn to drive far more quickly and thoroughly. Unlike traditional instruction LDC heavily promotes student centred learning. This involves the student being encouraged to take more responsibility for their own development by using the LD System materials before and after each lesson and by using discovery learning with self determination and reflection rather than being told what to do by the instructor. In particular talk through instruction, prompted practice and long winded explanations are avoided, if at all possible - instead encouraging the student to work it out for themselves.

UK Pedestrian Crossings
These are two of the types of pedestrian crossings used in the UK. The first is a PELICAN Crossing - 'PEdestrian LIght CONtrolled' Crossing, which features the far side red and green man. The other is a PUFFIN crossing - 'Pedestrian User Friendly INtelligent' crossing, which features a nearside pole mounted red and green man. The issue with PUFFIN crossings is that pedestrians cannot see if the green man is still showing while they are crossing but the crossings can detect the pedestrian so will give them time to cross. The cities of London and Birmingham switched back to PELICAN crossings in 2014 preferring the far sided red and green man. Which crossing do you prefer?

Pedestrian Crossings Driving Lesson - Approaching Pedestrian Crossings UK
http://www.drive-online.co.uk/pedestrian-crossings/ Pedestrian Crossings Driving Lesson - Approaching Pedestrian Crossings You MUST NOT park on a crossing or in the area covered by the zig-zag lines. You MUST NOT overtake the moving vehicle nearest the crossing or the vehicle nearest the crossing which has stopped to give way to pedestrians. In queuing traffic, you should keep the crossing clear. You should take extra care where the view of either side of the crossing is blocked by queuing traffic or incorrectly parked vehicles. Pedestrians may be crossing between stationary vehicles. Allow pedestrians plenty of time to cross and do not harass them by revving your engine or edging forward. Zebra crossings. As you approach a zebra crossing look out for pedestrians waiting to cross and be ready to slow down or stop to let them cross you MUST give way when a pedestrian has moved onto a crossing allow more time for stopping on wet or icy roads do not wave or use your horn to invite pedestrians across; this could be dangerous if another vehicle is approaching be aware of pedestrians approaching from the side of the crossing. Signal-controlled crossings Pelican crossings. These are signal-controlled crossings where flashing amber follows the red ‘Stop’ light. You MUST stop when the red light shows. When the amber light is flashing, you MUST give way to any pedestrians on the crossing. If the amber light is flashing and there are no pedestrians on the crossing, you may proceed with caution. Allow pedestrians to cross when the amber light is flashing Allow pedestrians to cross when the amber light is flashing Pelican crossings which go straight across the road are one crossing, even when there is a central island. You MUST wait for pedestrians who are crossing from the other side of the island. Laws ZPPPCRGD reg 26 & RTRA sect 25(5) Give way to anyone still crossing after the signal for vehicles has changed to green. This advice applies to all crossings. Toucan, puffin and equestrian crossings. These are similar to pelican crossings, but there is no flashing amber phase; the light sequence for traffic at these three crossings is the same as at traffic lights. If the signal-controlled crossing is not working, proceed with extreme caution. http://www.drive-online.co.uk/pedestrian-crossings/

Driving test 2019 UK  Pedestrian crossings (Full course Link in description)
Driving test 2019 UK -Pedestrian crossings https://www.newdriverprogramme.com/store/product-category/driving-lessons-online/ Pedestrian crossings provide a safe location for people to cross the road with priority over the traffic, they are designed to be seen easily, because of warning signs, flashing beacons, traffic lights and zig-zag road markings, in the zig-zag markings you are not allowed to overtake the lead vehicle or park on the zig-zag white lines. The only uncontrolled crossing is a zebra, give way to pedestrians that ate crossing, or who are waiting to cross. Check your mirrors and be prepared to stop, when waiting at the crossing apply the parking brake. There are several types of light-controlled crossings, puffin, toucan and Pegasus crossings all have a normal traffic light sequence. A toucan crossing a cyclist can ride across the crossings without dismounting. Pelican crossings are unusual as they show a flashing amber light after red, motorists should give way to pedestrians on the crossing when the amber light flashes but should proceed if the crossing is clear. Watch out for school crossing patrols, they could be situated at a Pedestrian crossing, outside schools or near a junction, there could be flashing amber lights or a patrol sign as you get close to them, if its obvious to you that the crossing warden wishes to allow pedestrians to cross, check your mirrors and give way.

HAWK pedestrian crossing "How To"
CIty of Tallahassee installed a new amenity designed to keep pedestrians safer. This new High intensity Activated cross Walk or HAWK for short, has flashing lights to alert motorists when pedestrians are ready to cross the road. The signal system works very much like a regular cross walk in terms of how the pedestrian uses it. However, the motorist will need to come to stop when the lights turn RED and treat the crossing just like a normal traffic signal. This stop only takes a few moments while pedestrians cross safely. Afterwards, the motorists can go on their way. For more information about the City of Tallahassee and WCOT, please visit: Talgov.com (http://bit.ly/Vo0X7J) Twitter.com/COTNews (http://bit.ly/1QxCm8M) Facebook.com/COTNews (http://on.fb.me/1krkY9O) Instagram.com/COTNews (http://bit.ly/1M9dqBs)

Faulty Pedestrian Traffic Signal
Looking North across S Street from the SW corner of 15th and S Streets NW. The Pedestrian signal clearly jumps ahead 15 seconds. This affects bicycle traffic as this is along the 15th Street NW separated bike lane where bicyclists using this bike lane have signage indicating they are to follow the pedestrian signals. I have forwarded this on to the pertinent city department. Hopefully a response will be given or corrective action will be taken.

Crosswalk safety education!
Boise Police officers want to take the time to educate pedestrians about the possible confusion over the new countdown crosswalk signals around the city! Some pedestrians appear to be miss-interpreting the countdown as a safe time to begin crossing the road, resulting in a potentially dangerous situation. The new countdown style pedestrian signals have been installed at most major intersections in Boise. Officers have noticed that many people don't understand the meaning of the signals. Many of them cross the street when it is not legally permitted, after the countdown has begun. Idaho State code 49-803 makes it clear that no one shall leave the curb to cross the street unless they are facing the steady "walk" signal. Once the flashing hand, or "don't walk" signal is showing, no one is permitted to start across the street, but pedestrians who have already legally started to cross may continue to the other side. This means that when the countdown has begun on one of the new street signs, it is not legal to begin crossing the street. The countdown is there simply to advise those who are already crossing, how long it may be before the light changes. Officers have noted that many of the pedestrians using the crosswalks may enter the intersection long after the countdown has begun, and rush across the street to make it before the countdown ends creating a potential hazard for the pedestrian and motorist. Officers would ask pedestrians to slow down, observe the traffic signals and follow the rules to keep our city intersections safer for everyone!

Bobby Jo's driving lesson 10 Traffic signals and pedestrian crossings
This video shows the tenth practical driving lesson (Lesson 10 in the LDC System of tuition, visit: https://www.learnerdriving.com for more details). The provisional plan for todays driving lesson was to cover traffic signals and pedestrian crossings while consolidating the work on busier junctions and roundabouts covered in the previous couple of lessons (not on video due to technical difficulties). Bobby Jo is now doing some preparation with the workbook and using the lesson planning and reflective diary section of the new LDC driving skills workbook in A4 format. The workbook will shortly be available as a pocket sized A5 booklet like the older version. News update: Bob is back on the road with Claire and Nikki testing the new LD System changes for 2014 - see LDC YouTube channel for details. Too many driving instructors focus too much attention on telling their pupils what to do, what to think and criticizing ever little fault they make! This approach only fosters dependency, doubt and blind obedience. This method of learning is not only slower it does little to develop safe driving attitudes. The LDC 'student centred' approach on the other hand does, by encouraging self-reliance, confidence and responsibility resulting in safer drivers who learn to drive far more quickly. This approach involves the student being encouraged to take more responsibility for their own development by using the LD System materials before and after each lesson and by using discovery learning with self determination and reflection; rather than being continually criticized and told what to do.

New Traffic Signal Setup with Flashing Right Arrow
So this setup is a mix of a Montréal Advanced arrow (the kind where the right turn arrow comes on when the pedestrian clearance phase starts) and flashing yellow arrow. The bus priority phase always goes first, followed by phase two and five (flashing green arrow). Once phase six starts, the through arrow will display and the right arrow will flash yellow. The walk phase is set to "rest in walk" for the duration of this phase. If you press the side street pedestrian button, the green arrow displays (bi-modal) and pedestrian clearance begins. The "emergency priority signals" will only display if a preemption is called. The side street phase is the same as before (Montréal Advanced arrow and an advanced walk and PED clear before phase eight turns green). Another preemption will recall the bus priority signal. Eventually I'll have detectors and the Opticom system set up to run this sequence but manual buttons will do the trick for now!

Pedestrian crossings with traffic lights
Road safety video - pedestrian safety on roads transcript: Pedestrian crossings with traffic lights Always wait for the green man signal before crossing. Make sure all traffic is stopping before you start to cross. Stay alert - look and listen for traffic as you cross. If the flashing red man signal starts while you are crossing, don't worry. You still have time to finish crossing. Continue walking across with care. You must not start to cross on the red man signal, even if it is flashing. At intersections, even with traffic lights, it is important to always look out for turning vehicles. Drivers must give way to you, but sometimes they may not see you. Check for vehicles turning right and left into the road you are crossing. At intersections always look out for turning vehicles. Remember, always obey the pedestrian crossing signals. Look out for traffic that may not have seen you.

Flashing Green Pedestrian Signal
This is a Crouse Hinds 8"-8"-8" signal from the Boston Massachusetts area. I have the signal set up as what was once a typical pedestrian crossing signal in Boston and Massachusetts. In the video the signal will go through the following phases of the sequence: 1. Flashing Green - this phase of the sequence was displayed on the main street facing signal head. In later years green was replaced with a yellow lens. As well for the side street the green lens would be replaced with a red lens and would convey the same meaning as a stop sign. This phase would remain flashing until 1.) a pedestrian signal was pressed or 2.) Having a pre-programmed sequence timed to also slow the speed of traffic. 2. Yellow - this follows the same as when a normal traffic signal is changing to red. This type of signal typically the standard 3-5 seconds for the yellow change, but some holder signals had a longer yellow phase. 3. Yellow/Red - this would signify the walk aspect to the vehicles and to the pedestrians. There are many variations on how the signal changes from the yellow phase to the yellow and red phase. The way I have it set up is the yellow will remain on and the red will light. But some other sequences would have the yellow go out and the red come on for a couple seconds and then the yellow re-lights. 4. Red - this phase of the sequence also varied in length it would be lit. But the reason for this phase was the same meaning of the flashing "Don't Walk" signal. It give the pedestrians who are crossing the time to finish and also tell them that the signal was going to change back to allowing the traffic to flow. Then the signal would return to flashing green. Typically this type of signal would be installed at an intersection where one or more side streets enter the main road where the side street would have has a stop sign controlling the traffic entering the intersection. So they would program this type of signal to flash so the main street traffic would know that the signal didn't control traffic movements on the side street as well as the side street signal would flash red in the spot where the green or yellow lens would be. Now when the signal was placed in flashing mode the signals would 1.) be wired the simplest way allowing the center yellow to flash in all direction or 2.) in later years when the signal were wired properly the center yellow would flash and for the side street would flash red as it properly should.

Claire's 11th driving lesson - 10 Traffic lights and pedestrian crossings plus part of 7 and 8
Claire decides to continue with lesson number 8 in the LD programme - Emerging from busier junctions as well as looking at lesson 7 Crossroads and 10 Traffic lights and pedestrian crossings. This is Claire's eleventh driving lesson with Bob (making about 12 hours of tuition so far). In her reflective diary Bob realises Claire hasn't done any preparation for lesson 10 (i.e. watching the video or looking at the Workbook notes) and therefore Bob decides to have a short discussion about traffic lights etc. to make sure she has adequate knowledge before moving off. Unlike traditional instruction LDC heavily promotes student centred learning rather than the instructor centred fault orientated learning approach offered by most other driving schools. This involves the student being encouraged to take more responsibility for their own development by using the LD System materials before and after each lesson and by using discovery learning with self determination and reflection; rather than being continually criticized and told what to do by the instructor. In particular talk through instruction, prompted practice and long winded explanations are avoided, if at all possible - instead encouraging the student to work it out for themselves. This series of videos shows Bob using the new LD System workbook as he helps Nikki and Claire learn to drive. The idea behind the LD System is that you watch the video, do a quiz in the workbook and then put the lesson into practice. The workbook also contains a set of activities and targets for each practical lesson along with a reflective diary to help you consolidate your learning, explore your progress and plan what you want to do next.

60 Second Driver - Pedestrian Lights at Intersections
Pedestrian traffic signals can help people walk safely across the road. The white walking symbol indicates that you can proceed to cross the street. While crossing, pedestrians have the right-of-way over all vehicles. A flashing or steady orange hand symbol means you should not begin to cross the road. If you have already started walking across when the flashing hand signal appears, finish crossing as quickly as possible. Pedestrians lights are timed to ensure people have enough time to cross the street safely. Remember to always cross the street at an intersection. Check that the intersection is clear and that drivers see you before you step out on to the road. As a driver, you should look out for pedestrians and yield to people crossing the street. A message brought to you by Manitoba Public Insurance, in partnership with CTV.

Pedestrian Safety and Flashing Yellow Arrow Traffic Signals: A Live Interview Webinar
Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium Presents: Pedestrian Safety and Flashing Yellow Arrow Traffic Signals: A Live Interview Webinar Agencies across North America are increasingly installing flashing yellow arrows at intersections to allow drivers to turn left after first yielding to oncoming traffic. While studies have shown the effectiveness of flashing yellow arrows, the factors that influence drivers' behavior at these intersections haven't been well studied, particularly the number of pedestrians and oncoming vehicles. An OTREC study paired researchers David Hurwitz of Oregon State University and Christopher Monsere of Portland State University to look at improving pedestrian safety at intersections with the flashing yellow arrow. We present the results of this study in a new interview show-style Webinar on Tuesday, May 7. Host Steph Routh, executive director of Oregon Walks (formerly the Willamette Pedestrian Coalition), will interview the researchers on the findings and their implications. She'll also talk with Stacy Shetler, principal traffic engineer with Washington County, Oregon, about the county's experience. Among the research findings: The more pedestrians that are present, the more attention drivers pay; The more oncoming cars, the less attention drivers pay to pedestrians; Four to 7 percent of drivers don't even look at pedestrians in the crosswalk. Results like these bolster arguments for limiting permissive left turns when pedestrians are present, as Washington County has done. May 07, 2013

Ground Traffic Signals / KBS뉴스(News)
[Anchor Lead] Authorities have begun installing traffic signals on the ground to prevent accidents by pedestrians who constantly look down at their smartphones. Test operations are being conducted in an area of Gyeonggi-do Province, but how effective will they be? Here's more. [Pkg] In front of Donong Station in Gyeonggi-do- Province, as the traffic light changes, the signs on the pavement located on each end of the crosswalk also changes. This is a ground traffic light installed as a preliminary test early last month. These were installed to prevent accidents caused by people not looking while crossing streets due to using one's smartphone. People crossing the roads guided by looking at the ground traffic lights instead of looking up can be easily seen. These ground traffic signals are more noticeable in the evening as the lights become more vivid. However, some say they are not that effective. When the ground traffic lights are installed directly in the middle of the crossing, there is a chance the lights may not be visible to pedestrians. The traffic lights might be even less noticeable during the day as the lights may not be as vivid. Also, the point at which pedestrians start crossing and the direction in which they walk differ, making it challenging to be effective. Some also say that the ground traffic lights encourage people to look down at their smartphones even more so while crossing streets. The police are planning to continue conducting test operations until late this year and will revise certain traffic laws if it is decided that the ground traffic lights are necessary.
