Crosswalk markings in San Diego are being upgraded to the continental style. This style helps prevent hazards to both drivers and pedestrians, keeping people visible while crossing the street and setting clear limits to drivers, helping them distinguish the crosswalk area.
The goal of San Diego County is to gradually replace all traditional crosswalk markings with the highly visible continental striping style. This, in order to enhance safety for everyone and reduce vehicle trespassing into the crosswalk.
Studies from the Federal Highway Administration have shown that continental striping is safer than traditional pedestrian crossings marked by two lines connecting the corners of an intersection. Continental striping is a more visible sign that alerts motorists when they’re approaching the pedestrian zone.
The implementation of continental crosswalks in San Diego is the sign of a great change for the city and its people.
