Pedestrian Safety

Learning and practicing proper pedestrian habits are important life skills. With students returning to school, keep an eye out for the school zone flashing lights both in the morning and in the afternoon. Watch a Pedestrian Safety video and learn tips to help students get to school and back home safely. Together, we can make our community a safe place to Walk ‘n Roll.

New for 2022 - 2023 School Year

Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon 
With the widening of Coit Road to 6 lanes, the City of Frisco installed a new type of traffic control device adjacent to Maus Middle School to enhance safety for pedestrians crossing Coit Road at Hay River Trail. The new signal is designed to improve safety for pedestrians while minimizing delay to motorists. A Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) differs from a pre-timed traffic signal or flashing beacon because it remains inactive or dark until activated by a pedestrian. PHBs help increase driver awareness to pedestrians crossing the roadway. Review a user guide for drivers and pedestrians. View a user guide for drivers and pedestrians (PDF).

Watch a Progress in Motion video highlighting the city’s first Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) cross walk and new school safety zones.

Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon
A new pedestrian activated flashing beacon will be activated in front of Rock Hill High School on Coit Road. A Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) uses bright yellow lights that flash to alert drivers when a pedestrian is ready to cross the street. Read more about this supplemental warning device (PDF).

Teens

Safe choices can make a big difference in preventing injuries among teen drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

  • Respect the school zone.
  • Put away technology and stay alert. It is against the law to text while driving.
  • Heads up. Phones down and make eye contact with motorists before crossing a street.
  • Use proper hand signals when cycling.
