Crosswalk in East Austin (TX) has new tech that alerts drivers of pedestrians

  • Date: 11/16/2021

The Austin Transportation Department (ATD) is starting a pilot program to improve pedestrian safety in East Austin as a crosswalk goes high-tech.

The new program is active at the crosswalk near Angelina Street and Rosewood Avenue.

Drivers of connected vehicles – connected to wireless networks – will be notified when someone is trying to cross the street after they push the signal button when the driver is still about a block away from the crossing.
