Research

Studies by road authorities, universities and other groups investigating driver and pedestrian behaviour, generally conclude that in-pavement warning lights are more likley to elicit appropriate changes in behaviour, thereby helping to avoid accidents, than road-side or over-road static (unlit) or flashing signs.

A selection of published articles addressing the use of simialr systems appears below.
