The crosswalk was first made to give safety to those who cross the streets.But, crosswalks are surrounded by accidents and dangers of the road.Most people feel safe on crosswalks and that is why they are not aware of their surroundings.Crosswalks are used daily and this is why we have to make sure of its safety.Most crosswalk accidents are due to careless people, but it is a difficult task to change people. It is key to implant the dangers of careless crossing in to their minds.This is why we used the crosswalk itself to deliver this message.While using the lighting system of the crosswalk we can visually enhance the remaining crossing time, and the crosswalk will fade out in sync with the street lights to turn in to a road for cars.Through this system people will know not to cross and have a perception that there might be danger if they cross when they'renot supposed to.We can remind people of the dangers of their surroundings when they're crossing the street or when they're about to cross the street, and people will not think twice about checking twice before crossing the streets.
