“ZEBRA” Countdown signal

06/03/2015

SWARCO TRAFFIC has installed a new generation of traffic signals on Jan Palach Square.

The countdown signal of type ZEBRA offers additional graphical information to pedestrians, showing the remaining clearing time, i.e. the time before the signal for the traffic turns green, thus allowing for a safer crossing for pedestrians. Instead of numerical values five white lines are used, hence the name ZEBRA.

The countdown signal is placed next to the red signal for better visibility.
