By STEVE BLACKffTON D.O.T. - Dlrlct  Engineer Many people every day walk across the road; but at a signalized intersection, are they doing it right? Most of the state's signalized intersections have pedestrian signal heads located at the inte These pedestrian signal heads are there to help the non-motor- ized public get across the roadway. The pedes- trian signal heads display three types of sig- nals just as a regular traffic signal does. First is a white WALK signal. This signal is represented by a figure in a walking stance. When you see this symbol, it means that you may enter the intersection and cross with the traffic. But as always you should look both ways before entering any roadway to make sure there is no moving traffic coming at you. Second is a FLASHING DON'T WALK signal. This signal shows a hand that will flash on and off over and over. When you see this signal, just keep walking ff you are already in the roadway. Many people think that this means turn around. But ff you have entered the roadway, continue to walk to the opposite side. If you have not entered the roadway, DO NOT. The signal allows a set amount of time for the pedestrian to cross the intersec- tion. This time is made up of the walk time and the flashing don't walk. When a person enters the intersection during the flashing don't walk, they are not getting the fulf time needed to.cross the intersection. Third and last is a SOI,ll) DON'T WALK signal. This signal snows a continu- ous hand. Anytime you see a solid don't alk symbol DO NOT ENTER the roadway. When this is present, either traffic is moving across the roadway that you want to cross or is about to start moving on the roadway. To use the pedestrian signals located at intersections, look on the pole where the pedestrian signal head is located You wilt see a button attached to the pole. When that button is pressed, a signal is sent to the inter- section controller that you are there and want to cross the roadway. Some intersections do not have these pedestrian signals. The state is in the process of getting pedestrian signals at intersections where they are needed. If you do not have a pedestrian signal you should again look both ways before entering the roadway and then cross with the traffic signal.
