Innovative lighting traffic lights appeared on the 25th of controlled pedestrian crossings on Chertanovskaya street, Warsaw highway, Vernadsky Prospekt, Leninsky Prospekt and other thoroughfares of the city. Green, yellow and red light illuminates not only light, but also the support on which it is installed, reported on the official website of the Moscow mayor.

«The use of innovative lighting solutions allows you to attract additional attention of drivers to the crossing and thus to reduce the number of road accidents involving pedestrians, especially in the dark time of the day» — are reported words of the head of TMS Vadim Yuriev.

By the end of March additional lighting will be another 44 pedestrian crossings, he added.

The experiment of lighting of the lights were run in 2016 on the five transitions. They also installed signs with an inner yellow light.
