The Turning Lane Pedestrian Indicator (TLPI) provides drivers with a visual cue that a pedestrian is either in the act of crossing the street at an intersection or is about to cross the street once the walk sign is displayed. The cue to the driver consists of a R10-15 “Turning Vehicles Yield to Pedestrian” that is equipped with LEDs that only light up after a pedestrian pushes a button at a crosswalk. After the button has been pressed a wireless radio signal sends a message to the sign that tells the LEDs when to turn on and off. The sign, which is mounted next to the red, yellow, & green lights will flash until the pedestrian signal light returns to it’s “don’t walk” state.
What Makes This Product The Coolest Thing Made In Idaho?
The Turning Lane Pedestrian Indicator (TLPI) is the coolest thing made in Idaho because there isn't anything cooler than saving a life. The TLPI was developed to protect pedestrians who are crossing at an intersection when the walk sign is on to cross. Too often drivers pull up to intersections and are busy looking for vehicles and don't spend enough time looking for pedestrians. The TLPI provides drivers with a visual cue that there is a pedestrian who is either in the act of crossing or is about to cross thus reducing the chances that a pedestrian will be struck while in the crosswalk. The TLPI consists of a sign next to the red, yellow, green lights at the intersection. The sign is typically a "Turning Vehicles Yield to Pedestrians" sign equipped with a ring of LEDs around it. The LEDs on the TLPI turn on after a pedestrian pushes a button at an intersection through a wireless radio signal that sends info from the button to the sign. LEDs only lighting up after a button is pressed is much more likely to catch the attention of the driver thus being more effective at protecting a pedestrian. So why vote for anything else when you can vote for a life saving product, the TLPI.
