Crosswalk Flags – See and Be Seen
The Town of Middleton has joined many other communities across Nova Scotia by installing crosswalk flags at designed marked crosswalks within the Town. The flags are fluorescent orange designed to provide high visibility to pedestrians.
Flags have been installed at these locations with the intent to increase the coverage annually. The initial locations are located at the following crosswalks:
- Marshall & Commercial
- King & Main
- Main & Taylor
- Duke & Main
The Town and RCMP advise that both pedestrians and drivers have a shared responsibility to ensure the safe passage of individuals across any roadway. The purpose of these flags is to provide high visibility for a pedestrian crossing a marked crosswalk but must be used in conjunction with the shared responsibility of ensuring that drivers stop and the pedestrian is confident that it is safe to cross the road.
The philosophy of “SEE AND BE SEEN” is the cornerstone of pedestrian safety
